FreeBSD "It is my great pleasure and privilege to announce the availability of FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE. This release is the next step in the development of the 6.X branch, delivering several performance improvements, many bugfixes, and a few new features. These include: Addition of a keyboard multiplexer. This allows USB and PS/2 keyboards to coexist without any special options at boot. Many fixes for filesystem stability. High load stress tests are now run successfully on a regular basis as part of the normal FreeBSD QA process. Automatic configuration for man Bluetooth devices, as well as automatic support for running WiFi access points. Addition of drivers for new ethernet and SAS and SATA RAID controllers."

Read /usr/ports/UPDATING

This file has vital information about changes in ports system. GNOME updates are usually listed there and include a link to FreeBSD's GNOME site where you can download a script that does upgrading without problems.
Use that script instead of portupgrade.

GNOME is so large and complicated set of interdependencies that portupgrade may not figure it out properly, that's why there's that script.

You could also install quite fresh GNOME from packages by using sysinstall.
