Yes, PORTSDIR has been redefined to point to where my ports reside. ;-)

I fully understand that I am missing these dependencies.  They simply do 
not exist on that system.

My complaint is that the build should stop immediately, with a clear error 
message, instead of forging ahead and silently do the wrong thing or fail 
at a later stage, during build, installation, or run-time.
