wxWidgets version?

Something is odd about wxWidgets and the versions.

I just did a sync and outdated and macports reported:
wxWidgets 2.8.10_0 < 2.8.9_0  (hmmm?)
Then I did port upgrade and got this:

--->  Fetching wxWidgets
--->  Verifying checksum(s) for wxWidgets
--->  Extracting wxWidgets
--->  Applying patches to wxWidgets
--->  Configuring wxWidgets
--->  Building wxWidgets
--->  Staging wxWidgets into destroot
--->  Deactivating wxWidgets @2.8.10_0
--->  Uninstalling wxWidgets @2.8.10_0
--->  Installing wxWidgets @2.8.9_0
Error: Target org.macports.install returned: Registry error: wxWidgets  
@2.8.9_0 already registered as installed.  Please uninstall it first.

And I then did this:
sudo port uninstall wxWidgets @2.8.9_0
--->  Uninstalling wxWidgets @2.8.9_0

and this:   sudo port install wxWidgets @2.8.10_0
--->  Installing wxWidgets @2.8.9_0
--->  Activating wxWidgets @2.8.9_0
--->  Cleaning wxWidgets

I did find this:  https://trac.macports.org/changeset/52662 but it  
doesn't really explain the story.  So, I don't get it about which one  
should be installed.

So, what's the story?  And what is the fix to it?
