Or so I thought...

The command "sudo port uninstall --follow-dependents boost" yields the

--->  The following versions of gimp2 are currently installed:
--->      gimp2 @2.6.6_1+darwin_9+x11
--->      gimp2 @2.6.6_2+darwin_9+x11 (active)
Error: port uninstall failed: Registry error: Please specify the full
version as recorded in the port registry.

Argh, another stumbling block! :(

Is this related to http://trac.macports.org/ticket/11501 ? I'm going to try
to puzzle it out, but in the meantime, advice would be welcome.
