Ignore port on FreeBSD

After update ports collection and find old port, need to upgrade. I found that port status : ‘Ignored

bow# portversion -v | grep ‘<'

XFree86-libraries-4.3.0_7 < needs updating (port has 4.4.0_3)

bow# portupgrade XFree86-libraries-4.3.0_7

** Port marked as IGNORE: x11/XFree86-4-libraries:
is part of XFree86-4

doh, new commit for this port 🙁

Try to update it’s makefile a bit

bow# cd /usr/ports/x11/XFree86-4-libraries/

bow# ee Makefile

find these lines:
.if ${X_WINDOW_SYSTEM:L} != xfree86-4
IGNORE= is part of XFree86-4

jadikan :

#.if ${X_WINDOW_SYSTEM:L} != xfree86-4
#IGNORE= is part of XFree86-4

try to portupgrade once again :

bow# portupgrade XFree86-libraries-4.3.0_7
