No difference; its portupgrade version 2.0.1 (as reported
by portupgrade --version).

True. But the system does WORK now, and id rather not
make it NOT WORK in the process of making it easier to

Oh yes! This does work. After this worked i went and reinstalled
all the ports listed, and now pkg_info (and pkg_delete, etc.) is working correctly. Thanks!
Something working at last.
So now i can find out what version each port is, but that doesnt
help me know whether these are outdated, or to update them.
For that im still stuck on the Ruby core dump problem. I did
reinstall portupgrade, ruby18, and the ruby-bdb thing, but sadly
i still get the same abort trap/core dump thing ive reported all
along. Is there any other way i can attack this last issue?
