Problem with building poppler

Sierra 10.12.6 (won't go any further), MacPorts 2.6.3 on a mid-2010
(Looks like "poppler" is part of "xpdf", my favourite PDF viewer.)
Whenever I do my regular "port upgrade outdated" I keep seeing the
following, and it's starting to annoy me:
---> 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
The "fix" is obvious of course, but before I file a bug report is this a
known problem? Error log available upon request.
(And yes, I know that I have a number of replies to acknowledge, but I've
been busy/sick lately; comes from being in my late 60s.)
