Dependent ports get "does not exist" errors

A user desktop system had a solid, reliable install of 6.3 on it. Did
an upgrade via source to 7-stable as of this morning.
Deleted all installed ports, updated the ports tree, then started
installing them from scratch.
Here's the problem: ports that depend on other ports will occasionally
install those ports and then not find them. For example, installing
===> Compressing manual pages for bash-3.2.48_1
===> Registering installation for bash-3.2.48_1
===> Returning to build of rarian-0.8.1
Error: file "bash" does not exist
*** Error code 1
Stop in /usr/ports/textproc/rarian
Stop in /usr/ports/graphics/gimp
Doing just "make install" again will find bash and continue.
Nothing has been changed (knowingly, anway) from default in the ports
system. make.conf only has perl version settings. This is an MSI
Athlon motherboard, 256M RAM, totally solid previously. Seems solid
now, except for this...
