None of the deleted ports have dependencies.

Quick solution for you is to touch /var/db/pkg/xvid4conf-1.12_5/+IGNOREME
which will make portmaster skip it.

If you believe the port still exists and is still relevant to people,
you are free to track down the distfile and submit a PR to update the
port and take over maintainership.

There have been several very long threads about the current ports
cleanup recently.  I suggest you read some of them to get more background.
