Yes, this is normal: I have several sources, and in particular the rsync
one with a lower precedence (ignored except for MacPorts upgrades):

file:///Users/vinc17/wd/macosx/dports [nosync]
file:///Users/vinc17/software/dports [nosync]

OK, you mean that this dependency is still recorded somewhere?

This fixes the problem.

prunille:~> port installed | grep scrollkeeper
  scrollkeeper @0.3.14_4 (active)

Now, this is strange as scrollkeeper depends on docbook-xml-scrollkeeper,
but this can be explained because docbook-xml-scrollkeeper contains
nothing. however, shouldn't scrollkeeper depend on docbook-xml-4.2
