I have used only "pkgdb -F", and thus "portupgrade -[U]u", from the
portupgrade tools. That may be why i haven't experienced your
problem w/ my ~490 lines strong refuse file...
...While making index, it helps immensely that ports that are being
refused do not have corresponding directores in existence.
Otherwise, one would get "no entry" error; "non-existent --
dependency list incomplete" error can be safely ignored, IMO.
I did try once to build/install port(s) via portupgrade, but the end
result was more work than otherwise. I haven't bothered w/ or
trusted portupgrade to maintain anything other than install ports
database ever since.
