Yes, I'm sure that I already had all the distfiles downloaded (including the
3.4 GB texlive-20210325-texmf.tar.xz in /usr/ports/distfiles/TeX) and the first
time I did the upgrade it got stuck for 2 days on a big server before I
interrupted the upgrade (after compiling successfully texlive-texmf and
attempting to install it).

I made several tries after that, each time getting to this strange side effect,
including tries where I previously wiped every trace of protobuf-c, doxygen and
TeX on my system before restarting.

This may be disk related, as I see that all the stuck processes are in D state,
which "Marks a process in disk (or other short term, uninterruptible) wait" but
there are no interesting messages in /var/log/messages.

Only meaningful traces in /var/log/messages are:
Mar  4 22:38:56 arche7 pkg-static[74773]: tex-kpathsea-6.3.3 installed
Mar  4 22:39:03 arche7 pkg-static[19603]: tex-ptexenc-1.3.9 installed
Mar  4 22:39:38 arche7 pkg-static[68651]: tex-web2c-20210325 installed
Mar  4 22:40:14 arche7 pkg-static[67889]: tex-basic-engines-20210325 installed
Mar  4 22:41:07 arche7 pkg-static[91101]: texlive-tlmgr-20210325_1 installed
Mar  4 22:44:41 arche7 pkg-static[34486]: texlive-base-20210325 installed

I worked around the issue by cutting the "LaTeX support" in doxygen or the
"Build documentation with Doxygen" in protobuf-c, and then 

So one of:
# cd /usr/ports/devel/doxygen ; make config
# cd /usr/ports/devel/protobuf-c ; make config

But I see this more as a worrying system side effect, than as an issue with a
port upgrade that I don't really need.
