Current version from my repository -
- has +IGNOREME working. portmaster -R works too, now. Only packages 
and file preservation are missing, plus a small part in portmaster -e.

Also, portmaster now sets the "orphan" flag which makes pkg autoremove 
work. Unfortunately pkg query "%a" is broken in pkgng beta 1, so it's not 
fully working yet. In addition, since the old package database doesn't store 
that information, pkg autoremove will only work with newly installed 
packages, for the moment.

Can you test my latest version and report, submitting a log if you get an 
error? Thanks.

Drawing on my fine command of language, I said nothing.
