Ah, then the meaning has changed. I always pass -f to upgrade because  
otherwise MacPorts refuses to deactivate the old version if the are  
any ports which depend on it, despite the fact that it's about to  
activate the new version.

In times past, the -f flag did not force it to upgrade dependencies  
that didn't need the upgrade.

I want to upgrade out-of-date dependencies, I just also want to  
actually install the damn thing.

Is there any solution to this right now?
