Indeed, gmt4 and gmt5 declare a dependency on gshhg-gmt-nc4, but gshhg-gmt-nc4 has been replaced. It is not proper to declare a dependency on a replaced port, so this is a bug.

Please report this bug to the maintainers of gmt4 and gmt5. Ideally, file a bug report in Trac. If that is not possible, please email the maintainers. You can get their addresses by running “port info gmt4 gmt5”. (They might respond faster to direct mail than posts on the mailing list; they might not even be subscribed to the list.)
