Oh, okay. Well I'll use sh from now on then, no problem. That 
bsd.python.mk message appeared on my last portupgrade as well (first one 
done on this system since it was installed a few months ago). The last 
portupgrade went fine, but is that something I should worry about?

Do you think I NEED to run it based on that output? The guide to 
portupgrade I am following says to definitely run it if I am told to, 
but doesn't say anything about running it otherwise. portversion -l "<" 
seems to show the out of date ports properly so I'm not sure if it is 

Thanks again. Much appreciated.
