I am running a FreeBSD server with Postfix Dovecot and amavisd-new  .  Going through A recent upgrade  i have come to the observation that overtime I have
messed up and install two Spamassasins    at least I believe that is what the following message us feeling me when I trie dot upgrade amavisd-new

"Installing spamassassin-3.4.0_17...
pkg-static: spamassassin-3.4.0_17 conflicts with p5-Mail-SpamAssassin-3.3.2_8 (installs files into the same place).  Problematic file: /usr/local/bin/sa-awl
*** Error code 70

I assume thefts was trying to update spamassassin-3.4.0_17   so i went and tried to delete p5-Mail-SpamAssassin-3.3.2_8

and go this 

"pkg_delete: package 'p5-Mail-SpamAssassin-3.3.2_8' is required by these other packages
and may not be deinstalled:

Do is my best course of action to delete those ports and reinstall from scratch??
