This is mentioned in UPDATING and I did it.

I wish this was mentioned in UPDATING...

I had 6 auto* ports under /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.12.3/mach/auto/
I rebuilt them. Now


are empty. I presume I can remove those safely, can't I?
And 5.10.1 (also empty)?

Anyway, the problem is still there:

===>>> Gathering dependency list for www/webkit-gtk2 from ports
===>>> Launching child to install lang/p5-Switch
        midori-0.3.6 >> www/webkit-gtk2 >> lang/p5-Switch

The following commands don't indicate any problems:

portmaster --check-port-dbdir
portmaster --check-depends

So something else is still not right.
Can you suggest what further steps I should take?

I never succeded in this. On my installation it pulls 133 ports,
and it always fails, probably before even 50 ports are updated.

I never succeded in  -r gnutls either.

I think right now the webkit update is the problem.
