I experienced the same problem after updating ports on a 4.6.2 system on
Aug 18 and trying to install libtool14.
I chased the problem down to changes in /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk, where
the -O flag is used with the pkg_info command.
Removing the -O flag allowed me to install the port.
A comment for Revision 1.458 of this file (Sun Jul 27 02:06:26 2003 UTC)
indicates the problem using -O was fixed.
