Ignore that.  mergemaster is not your problem if you only updated the
ports.  Sorry for the misguided attempt at helping, but when you said
"everything" I incorrectly assumed the base system.

Not really.

I don't know what you updated and how, so can you please give us more
details.  Then we'll probably be able to help you with the /etc files
that seem to have problems.
