i don't understand all these details, but ...

... why not simply add the deactivate operation in portfile, to  
upgrade ? :-)

on top of that it is done anyway, but usually it is done after  
building, not before,
and if there is an (other) problem while building, the user can steel  
manually reactivate subversion (that he can't do if it is uninstalled)

(clean is not needed :-) )

yes it worked :-)
