Funnily enough I wrote a message to this very list on that subject not
3 days ago:

Just substitute 'net/openldap20' for 'net/openldap21' in what I wrote.

No -- there's about 4 that always come up when I do a 'make index'.
It happens because there are several 'slave' ports which are being
confused with the master port by your setting variables in
/etc/make.conf or even by autodetecting certain shared libraries you
have installed.  It's mostly harmless.
