I'm curious - how and for what are you using kpackage at all? The BSD
package management functions are rudimentary at best, and I've debated
completely disabling it in the kdeadmin port multiple times.

Also, it's possible now to move ${INDEXFILE} out of ${PORTSDIR}
completely, which would require even more upstream maintenance to make
kpackage properly cope.

FWIW, It's probably not too late to get the fix committed, I'll run it
past portmgr at .
