Hi Guido,

Looking at the port Makefile, I see this:

PLIST_FILES=    bin/pokerth %%DATADIR%%/pokerth share/pixmaps/pokerth.png

Those will be the only files deinstalled when the port is deinstalled.
If the port installs a bunch of other files in ${DATADIR}, as reported
by QAT, I don't believe they will be deinstalled.

Are you positive that the ${DATADIR} directory is removed on the i386
platform?  From the list of files reported by QAT, it makes sense to
remove PLIST_FILES from the Makefile and create a pkg-plist file.

I've had great success using the ports-mgmt/genplist port to
automatically generate the pkg-plist file.

Hope that helps, and post back here with any additional questions.
