It means that if you were to install this port, it would not clean
itself up properly when you removed it again later.  If you don't
care about this, you can set the TRYBROKEN variable.


Have you updated you portstree Bob ?

From /usr/ports/UPDATING

 AFFECTS: users of pear ports
 AUTHOR: ale@xxxxxxxxxxx

 A few old pear ports have been removed from the tree in favor of a
 single devel/pear port.  If portupgrade complains about missing ports,
 you may safely remove pear-XML_RPC, pear-Console_Getopt, pear-Archive_Tar
 and php[45]-pear and then run:

 portupgrade -o devel/pear -f pear-PEAR
