The -r for xfe isn't going to do anything since xfe is a leaf port (it
is not depended on).

Did this actually rebuild cups-base at any point? I suspect not since
the dependency seems to be indirect (i.e., I can't find a connection
between the two in any of the ports infrastructure dependencies).

Try just 'portmaster cups-base' and see if that works. You should not
have to rebuild xfe since it will still be linking to

You might want to look at the -w option for portmaster as well. While
it would "fix" this particular problem, it also delays the inevitable
and can lead to its own set of "unpredictable results."

hope this helps,
