Yes, that works for *ports.*  Unfortunatly, it doesn't appear to work for 
non-ports that are installed but show up in the ports system.  (The 
bsdpan-* stuff.)  (Note: The error I quoted earlier is the very first thing 
that shows up when I run portmanager - it then goes on to collect installed 
port data, and notes but skips a couple that I had already put in to be 
ignored.  The error I'm having appears to occur before that step - and 
interferes with the proper collection of installed port data.)
