OK, so that's working as intended; build phases that are already 
complete won't be repeated unless the Portfile changed.

The cleaning done when you uninstall something is cleaning the work 
directory for the the port that you uninstalled in the registry, not the 
one you're building. It would be pretty inconvenient if uninstalling a 
previous version wiped out your work directory.
