It only means that when you install gtk2, you'll get a:

Error: port activate failed: Image error: /opt/local/include/gail-1.0/ 
gail/gailwidget.h is being used by the active gail port.  Please  
deactivate this port first, or use the -f flag to force the activation.

And then you'll need to do an extra step like this:

sudo port -f activate gtk2 @2.14.3_2+x11

That'll move the old gail inside, and then it's done.
Eventually the old gail port will get deleted/removed.
