py27-feedparser-5.1.2 has a different PREFIX: /var/tmp/cgmail, skipping

Somehow, in your working and temporary building, you have installed
this program to a different prefix. That means that it's files will be
under /var/tmp/cgmail, and your install cannot find them.
Personally, I haven't messed around with prefixes, but make
"PREFIX=/var/tmp/cgmail uninstall"in textproc/py-feedparser should get
rid of that misinstalled version, so you can reinstall it normally and

This also explains your original error.
