Well, that actually explains a lot. The receipt has 'epoch 2', while the
current portfile is at epoch 1. No idea how it got there unless you used
a modified portfile at some point, but in any case the epoch value would
have been carried over into the sqlite registry. (You can check this by
opening the registry.db with the sqlite3 tool and running the .dump

But the real question is now why 'port outdated' is *incorrectly*
showing gcc44 as outdated.
