Errors when trying to run Portupgrade

I was getting errors finding files in site-ruby when attempting to run
Portupgrade, so I figured my Portupgrade installation might be messed
up. I did make deinstall for Portupgrade and pkg_deleted portupgrade*
and ruby* (I haven't used ruby for anything else yet). I even did
"make clean" in a place or two and, since pkg_delete failed to do
this, rm'd -r /usr/local/lib/ruby and /usr/local/share/doc/ruby.
I then reinstalled Portupgrade, which appeared to reinstall Ruby also.
Now, running portupgrade gets me a different error:
** Error occured reading /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf:
undefined method `+' for nil
I note a lot of differences between /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf and
I welcome suggestions on how to get this working, including RTFM-type
pointers to effective sources of documentation.
Please Cc responses to me.
