You told Perforce that the file had been deleted.  It doesn't assume that 
there is any relationship between the old file and the new file just 
because you gave it the same name (and contents).  Therefore, your merge is 
between two files with no historical relationship in Perforce's eyes.

The message you are getting indicates that you are probably using 
P4Win.  If you go to the Options... button, you will find a checkbox 
entitled "Enable Baseless Merges".  Check that box and it will let you go 
ahead.  You likely want to do an "Accept Theirs" when you resolve unless 
you had some custom edits when you originally branched.
