I don't know if the use of the pre-deactivate phase needs to be bracketed with a check for the registry type, or whether MacPorts handles that properly internally.

Looking at the portgroups in question, having the pre-deactivate phase
working for some (most?) people appears to be strictly better than
having it work for no one...
