Is it possible/desirable to modify bsd.port.mk so that
ports marked IGNORE or BROKEN exit with an error
code, like "make check-conflicts" does if there is a conflict?

Right now there is a problem with sysutils/portmanager
not properly handling ports marked BROKEN because
make seems to exit with no error.  I could add parsing 
Makefiles for the term "BROKEN" to portmanager, but that
seems a shame, because untill now portmanager has never
needed to snoop the insides of Makefiles.

thank you
