Thanks, Garrett.  For my current problem I am simply going to delete the 
errant portmaster-3.14 from /var/db/pkg and then run 'portmaster -a -f -D' 
with the hope that portmaster-3.14_7 can fix things.  If not I will try 
reinstalling, the are only a few things installed- freeradius, postgresql, 
and about a dozen others.
