2 is the revision of the port. We increment the revision of a port when we need to push a change out to you without changing the version of the port.

Because MacPorts has identified that it is broken, in other words it links with libraries which don't exist or aren't working. If you run `sudo port -d rev-upgrade` it will tell you specifically what files are involved.

Allowing the rev-upgrade process to rebuild the port should be the correction. If that build is failing, show us the main.log.
