Portmaster ignoring +IGNOREME??

Apologies if this appears twice, I posted it nearly 24 hours ago and it 
hasn't shown up in the list so I'm resending it.

I've got +IGNOREME in /var/db/pkg/mozilla-1.7.13_3,2/ (as it's only
required for OpenOffice which I don't usually bother upgrading - also

/var/db/pkg{112}# ls -l mozilla-1.7.13_3,2/

Today I ran ``portmaster -Baud'' before I went out, when I came back it
had aborted:

===>>> Port directory: /usr/ports/www/mozilla
          ===>>> This port is marked DEPRECATED
          ===>>> The mozilla team has shifted the development branch of
mozilla to  seamonkey, this port is outdated and has many
vulnerabilities.  Please consider using www/seamonkey or www/firefox

          ===>>> If you are sure you can build it, remove the
                 DEPRECATED line in the Makefile and try again.

===>>> Update for mozilla-1.7.13_3,2 failed
===>>> Aborting update

===>>> pkg-message for apache-1.3.41
===>>> pkg-message for firefox-,1
===>>> Done displaying pkg-message files

When it ran the recursive ``make config'' it honoured the +IGNOREME for
Mozilla but it appears not to have done during the actual builds.

Also, what's with the strange characters in the pkg-message for apache?
8-bit I would guess?

Not sure which version of portmaster(1) was run. I was on the version
prior to 2.0 but the first thing it did was u/g portmaster to 2.0 (if
I'd spotted it in the output of ``portmaster -L'' I would have upgraded
it manually first) so I guess this run was done using the previous version?
