Ok, I have found the problem.  I had mis-specified the port group that a particular port was in.  xmixer is in audio, not x11, for example.

if you use portmaster's -p option to specify the path to a port and that path doesn't exist, portmaster will display a message that the path is not found and no xref is found, but then proceed to clean for ' ', which essentially walks through the entire tree.  It doesn't stop when the specified port is not found!  The not found messages go by quickly and I never saw them.


%portmaster -p /usr/ports/x11/xmixer
