Er, your suggestion implies the port isn't operating correctly.
That's not the case.  The build of the port doesn't even get far
enough to install the UPGRADE file.  It's during the configuration
that the failure occurs.  It's like the port hasn't been done
correctly (though I'm not saying that's the case - it just feels
that way).
