I don't think we have a fixed policy (and if we do, it was developed  
before we switched to subversion, so we didn't have svn mv available).

I would vote to just svn mv it and check in an updated portfile, but  
I could see where an argument could be made to make it easier for  
users who only do 'port upgrade' to know what is going on.
