 Re: strange dependency issues with pkgdb -F -- please help!

Yes it is quite strange that the portupgrade would specify a port to be its own dependency. I also experienced the same situation once or twice.

Origin of port linux-sun-jdk-1.4.2.08_2 is java/linux-sun-jdk14. Not all the port names conform to /^[-,._a-zA-Z]+$/.

Here, linux-sun-jdk-1.4.2.10 (installed from ports tree) has dependency on both linux_base & linux-XFree86-libs ...

<code>
pkg_tree linux-sun-jdk-1.4.2.10
linux-sun-jdk-1.4.2.10
|\__ linux_base-8-8.0_10
|\__ linux-expat-1.95.7
|\__ linux-fontconfig-2.2.3_2
|\__ linux-XFree86-libs-4.3.99.902_5
\__ javavmwrapper-2.0_6
</code>

... apparently on my system there seems to be no conflic between linux_base & linux-XFree86-libs.

It is possible that your linux_base might have installed XFree86-libs?
