    ports-mgmt/portmaster Makefile distinfo 
  New Features
  1. Add the ability to retry package creation. This is mostly useful for
     PM_SU_CMD after a build that took so long that your sudo ticket has
  2. Add support for multiple -r options on the same command line. [1]
  Various Internal Cleanups and Improvements
  1. s/printf/echo -e/ for consistency, and use it to full advantage
  2. In the code that derives the proper value of PACKAGESITE remove 6.x
     and add 9.x. Also add a 10-current entry.
  3. Add a more-or-less painless test to deal with the issue of the current
     working directory no longer existing. This problem usually manifests as
     a "The value of DISTDIR cannot be empty" error because 'make -f' does
     not handle this condition gracefully.
  4. In find_and_delete_distfiles() (run after a successful install) change
     the default pattern to be foo-[0-9]* instead of foo* [2]
     When the new pattern doesn't match any existing distfiles, fall back to
     the old one.
  5. Also in find_and_delete_distfiles(), cache matches to $DI_FILES so that
     we don't have to re-test that same file again.
  6. Change the method used to print the prompt in get_answer_g() to echo -e
     so that I can be more flexible in formatting prompt messages.
  7. For --clean-packages if a package is up to date but not installed
     it should still be deleted if -y is in use.
  8. Avoid duplicate word in a composite sentence [3]
  9. If a user has non-standard FETCH_ARGS it could circumvent the intent
     of --always-fetch, so forcibly unlink the file before proceeding to
     the fetch routine.
