Reread what Kris replied, especially the part that says: "It's now
contained in the base system," then read the message from when you try
to make from the ports system: "===> portsnap-1.0 now contained in the
base system." What that all means is that since you deinstalled the
port, you are done. Finished. Nothing more to do. Nothing tricky
needed. Just use portsnap v1.0
