Another snag: devel/doxygen and audio/jack seem to have themselves as dependencies

I remember this or similar dependency loop in the past, thought it was fixed, then apparently the dependency loop came back.
Maybe wait until this bug is (temporarily?) fixed again? I look through the Makefiles for audio/jack and devel/doxygen and can't find what the default options are supposed to be.
I have other things I could do in the interim, like cross-compiling NetBSD and Linux, so I don't have to resume this portupgrade/portmaster immediately.
I was waiting on FreeBSD update from source until I could finish upgrading all ports depending on png, but that won't happen any time soon with portmaster.
I still don't have my HP LaserJet working.
Portmaster finds one port that won't update, and stops the whole process. Portupgrade, in my experience, upgraded most other ports, and then I could fish through the log file, make fixes, and portupgrade those failed ports one at a time.
I have a NetBSD 5.1_STABLE installation on old computer with many packages built from pkgsrc, from summer 2011. I just checked, and there was no jack or doxygen.
Now I am more than ever tempted to update FreeBSD from source, install to another partition on my 3 TB Western Digital Caviar Green hard drive, and build packages from NetBSD pkgsrc, which has been ported to and can be bootstrapped on FreeBSD and other (quasi-)Unixes and even Haiku OS. No more config dialogs messing up when I create a log file.
