Wesley is correct that he's brought this to my attention already, and also 
correct that I didn't have time to respond due to the holidays. I just put 
a patch at http://dougbarton.us/pm-ignore-deleted.diff that should work 
for you if you have an +IGNOREME file for the port. I would rather do that 
than add another option since the +IGNOREME file is well documented, and 
compatible with portupgrade.

As others have already pointed out, you really should upgrade this, since 
there will be no new security fixes for squid 2.5.x. Do 'portmaster -l | 
more' and look for squid. If it's in the "leaf port" category, the update 
is easy:
portmaster -d -e squid-2.5.14_4
portmaster www/squid

If it's not in the leaf port category, you can do:
portmaster -o www/squid squid-2.5.14_4

This is assuming you have the latest version installed of course. Replace 
"squid-2.5.14_4" with whatever version you have installed.

hope this helps,
