Strange, I have NO_RECURSIVE_CONFIG=yes (-G) in my /etc/portmaster.rc and
I can't reproduce it.
% cat /etc/portmaster.rc
I have ran 'portmaster -a' recently and it went well. I have lsof
installed too in here. Maybe it's -G combine with one of option that made
different result? Or maybe just -i?
-i interactive update mode -- ask whether to rebuild ports
