perl was just updated, and nearly everthing depends on it. I'm
seeing complaints from portupgrade users and portmanager's
users and all I can say is sorry, its beyond my control.
About seeing how far along portmanager is, you can get a "feel" for
time remaining by doing the following:
tail -f /usr/local/share/portmanager/ports_old.db
It will let you monitor the ports queued up for upgrading
ps: I'm cc'ing this to freebsd-ports at freebsd.org for the
benefit of others with the same complaint.
