I had done that when Robert contacted me first and could not find

Any chance portmaster could tell us where the loop comes from?  I
looked at the -v option, but that one did not seem to provide this
information and I feel stuck right now.

Thanks for the confirmation, David.

Is it possible you have some special setting somewhere, Robert,
like USE_GCC=... as a global setting somewhere?

(Though, shouldn't even that work with portmaster assuming that this
part of the process, forcing deinstallation of the old version and
installing a new package, does not depend on "any" other ports?)
