@ Oli: The code you posted is most likely correct, as I get the same error if
I do it manually from the terminal:
# pkg install aaa/port1 bbb/port2 ccc/port3 etc..
I am slicing the list into smaller pieces and running the code you posted on
the smaller slices. It works, as long as the list does not contain a port
with some kind of issue. The issues appear to be:
* Dependent port is one of conflicting ports (py27-setuptools for example)
* If the list already contains the dependent port (Not always, seems to loop
on its self for some however)
