Hi, Eitan.

It could be that I had a case of bad luck.  About an hour before the 
documentation was put into /usr/ports/UPDATING, I noticed that portmaster 
was not working and 'make deinstall' and 'make reinstall' and ticked 
'pkgng'.  Then portmaster seemed to work alright.

Then when the UPDATING entry 20121010 happened shortly after, I followed 
it exactly- so yes I ran pkg2ng.  Somehow my installation has both 
portmaster-3.14 *and* portmaster-3.14_7 installed.  Perhaps my portmaster 
upgrade prior to following the UPDATING entry 20121010 broke something.

I can guess that my database is messed up.

Thanks for your reply,
