Thanks for help. 

Indeed file is from portupgrade and quite stale too. I should check it's
content before assuming it's used by portmaster. 

What  fooled me is that earlier portmaster versions didn't complain
about this file and I thought portupgrade would delete it's database 
upon deinstall (which can be preferred behaviour as we see).

I should add that this warning didn't stop portmaster from working.
