Awsome! I can test it in the next week or so. Right now, I am working on  
install KDE and GNOME 2.15.x together in jail for conflict stuff by merge  
into a prefix. When I am done w/ it, then I can test your patch by upgrade  
GNOME 2.14.x to 2.15.x. It is a huge upgrade, so let's see how portmaster  
can handles it. :-)
