I pulled after the patch for texlive-texmf but still have issues updating TeX,
still indicating a circular dependency but it seems that texlive-base conflicts
with texlive-texmf since they are already installed and it will still not
proceed. Not sure what the purpose of all these conflicts are, but they
seemingly make it impossible to update because the old ports existing means
they cannot update to new versions. 

------------------------- Similar to texlive-texmf bug posted earlier

===>>> Launching 'make checksum' for print/texlive-texmf in background
===>>> Gathering dependency list for print/texlive-texmf from ports

===>>> print/texlive-base seems to depend on print/texlive-texmf
       which looks like a dependency loop

===>>> Try pkg updating print/texlive-texmf
===>>> Aborting update

===>>> Update for texlive-texmf-20150523_4 failed
===>>> Aborting update

===>>> Update for tex-dvipsk-5.995_2 failed

$} make depends
===>   texlive-texmf-20210325 depends on file: /usr/local/sbin/pkg - found
===>   texlive-texmf-20210325 depends on executable: tex - found
===>   texlive-texmf-20210325 depends on package: texlive-base>=20210325 - not

===>  texlive-base-20210325 conflicts with installed package(s): 

      They install files into the same place.
      You may want to stop build with Ctrl + C.


and after deleting texlive-texmf to try to pull it in naturally during upgrade
now I get

===>>> Gathering dependency list for print/texlive-base from ports

===>>> print/texlive-tlmgr seems to depend on print/texlive-base
       which looks like a dependency loop

UPDATING instruction is wrong, this thing will not upgrade with portmaster at
all, everything is blocking each other possibly due to conflicting with the old
