"portmaster -o" behaves a little strangely (IMHO)

Well, since gcc44 is no longer installed, I just tried:

portmaster -o lang/gcc47 lang/gcc46

And the actions that started were much more along the lines of what I
was expecting.  The build of gcc47 is currently underway as I write

So, it seems it's not a good idea to "mix and match" port origins with
port names in the case of this particular option.  Could this be
considered a "bug"?  It certainly seems to at least qualify as a
"quirk", I would say.  :-)
