Based on discussion on this list, and some user problem reports and 
suggestions, I've updated portmaster as follows. As always, thanks to 
those who've shown an interest in improving this tool.

   New Feature
   --clean-distfiles[-all] options to check /usr/ports/distfiles for
   stale stuff, and either offer to delete them or delete them all
   without prompting.

   Bug Fix
   Fix brain-o that broke the -o option.

   Usability Improvements
   1. If a port skeleton is missing, but the pkg db has an +IGNOREME
   file, skip the update check, but issue a warning for it.
   2. If there is no +IGNOREME file, and no version information is
   present, fail with a helpful error message.
   3. Clean up any trailing / character on directory names input
   at the command line.
   4. Allow user to specify just category/portname on the command
   line without -p.
   5. Work around a missing +REQUIRED_BY file for a -r port.

   Minor cleanup
   Make case consistent for all usage() items
