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

No, it means that the ports framework is seeing 4.4 as a dependency of
4.6 for some reason. I've seen that happen in the past when non-base gcc
was in use, but have never had anyone track down the cause
authoritatively. Obviously make.conf is a suspect, but I'm assuming you
already looked there.

What you probably have to do is pkg_delete -f 4.4, then do the same
portmaster -o command but with 'lang/gcc44' as the second argument.
