I don't doubt that, but portupgrade itself tossed out the instruction to me to
run pkgdb -F, to fix something (I don't know what). I didn't just want to run
something which has such a confusing man page. I ran it under instructions, and
now it's asking me questions which I can't figure out the effects of any of the
offered actions will be.
Everyone seems to want to toss me hazy hints instead of what those options
actually accomplish; I'm beginning to think that the only folks who are
answering are the folks who don't really know the answer.
