Subject:   portmaster or ports (packaging) problem ?

I hit a problem today during a system update.

There were two libxul ports:
of which the last one was installed:

There was a port to update which died on error:
# portmaster icedtea-web
===>>> The dependency for www/libxul
       seems to be handled by libxul-
===>   Found libxul-, but you need to upgrade to libxul>=10.
*** [build-depends] Error code 1

So, I had to manually deinstall www/libxul19 and install www/libxul and try

# portmaster icedtea-web
===>>> The following actions will be taken if you choose to proceed:
        Upgrade icedtea-web-1.3_1 to icedtea-web-1.3.1
        Install www/libxul

Is the portmaster to blame for not being smart enough and not taking steps
of deinstalling www/libxul19 and installing www/libxul in one step ?
