Howdy Porters,

I just finished clobbering all of the post-deinstall targets that were in
the portstree. Currently, this is an invalid target to use in a port.

Please use the default pkg-deinstall file:

or, use SUB_FILES:

I will work on a effort, as well, to get some supporting documentation into
the Porter's Handbook.

Many thanks,
