portmaster deletes failed ports

I ran my approx. daily portmaster -a -d run this morning.  It started
upgrading sysutils/bsdstats, but failed because pkg-install was not
present.  When that file got committed later this morning, portmaster
didn't upgrade the port because ... (huh ?) ... bsdstats was not
installed anymore.

Just reinstalling bsdstats solved it, but this can be problematic if
some heavily dependent-on port fails and gets erased.
