ffitarget.h": file already exists

I am currently trying to add Ada support to the gcc34 package.  
Currently there is none since Ada is self hosted (the Ada compiler is  
written in Ada) and therefore you need an Ada compiler to compile Ada.

Personally I consider self hosting a good thing even when it makes a  
little more work initially.

Anyway I run into a little problem for which I have no explanation:

--->  Staging gcc43 into destroot
Error: Target org.macports.destroot returned: error copying "/opt/ 
include/ffitarget.h" to "/opt/local/var/macports/build/ 
include/gcc43/ffitarget.h": file already exists
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

I deleted "/opt/local/var/macports/build/ 
_Developer_work_gnuada_OSX_ports_lang_gcc43" before starting to  
compile and still I get this error.

Any ideas where to look for the problem?

I have attached the Portfile - if you want to try it out you will get  
the needed boot strap compiler from http://www.macada.org.

I can provide more debug information it that helps.

With Regards
