You, probably, have a circular dependency -- a bad idea in general. In 
particular, the current bsd.port.mk will choke on such a thing... Do you have 
both WITH_ESD (esound) and WITH_ARTS set, for example?

Anyway, to help track it down, try the attached patch for bsd.port.mk and 
watch for patterns while "make install" or "make package" are running.
