On building poppler

Looks like some sort of a PDF viewer (I didn't exactly choose to install
it, so I'm guessing that it's a dependency) but it's always failing on my
regular "port upgrade outdated" (and yes, I've dropped the "-p" flag
unless I really need it).
---> Configuring poppler
Error: poppler cannot be built while another version of poppler is active.
Error: Please forcibly deactivate the existing copy of poppler, e.g. by running:
Error: sudo port -f deactivate poppler
Error: Then try again.
Error: Failed to configure poppler: poppler is active
Error: See /opt/local/var/macports/logs/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_macports_release_tarballs_ports_graphics_poppler/poppler/main.log for details.
Error: Follow https://guide.macports.org/#project.tickets to report a bug.
I can't believe that I'm the only one seeing this (it fixes itself) but it
looks like some step has been omitted in the build process. Should I
report a bug that likely has been reported before, or could be my fault
somehow? I don't report bugs unless I'm convinced that it's a bug (before
I retired I had a reputation for quality reports).
And yes, I have a shipload of other responses to address as soon as I get
a round tuit...
