I have lzmautils-4.32.7
$ pkg_info | grep lzmautils-4.32.7
lzmautils-4.32.7    LZMA compression and decompression tools

-- What does this  Comparaised failed mean ??

I started a portupgrade:
# portsnap fetch
# portsnap update
# portupgrade -yaRrpb | tee /tmp/portupgrade-mail

the output reports about gtar-1.22 :

Is xz-4.999.9  a complete replacement for package lzmautils-4.32.7
must I completely pkg_delete lzmautils-4.32.7 and never install it again?

Then retry portupgrade ?

Or what should I best do ?
