Hmm. Well, *something* was whinging about the MD5 hashes not
matching (and indeed they weren't), just before the install
failed. Could it have been the process that builds a backup
package from the installed files?
Thanks for making portmaster, btw. It's a great tool, and I
find that I prefer it to portupgrade, although I can't say that
I can put my finger on why, exactly...
