I have removed /etc/make.conf and /usr/local/etc/portmaster.rc, cleaned 
up /var/db/ports but with no success.

What could be the relation or better the problem with the portmaster 
script and -DBATCH. I have seperated the pm_make function and the small 
subshell for fetching to another shell script and there it works.

I habe checked the Makefiles in /usr/share/mk, removed and extracted the 
ports tree several times, rebuild world, mergemaster - dont know where 
to go.
