Is the long error message at rev-upgrade wanted or a bug?

I upgraded a few ports manually 

	$ sudo port upgrade libgsf orbit2 policykit webp wget youtube-dl py27-libxml2

because gwenhywfar is failing for me at the moment, which is why "sudo port upgrade outdated" failed for me always.

The manual upgrade worked fine, but is the long error message on rev-upgrade a bug or a wanted feature?

I would have though it is enough to signal that building gwenhywfar failed.
