The old version was removed and portmaster claimed that the new one
was installed but as the lack of "make install" output shows, the port
wasn't actually installed and in fact it wasn't even built. Manually
building and installing it worked as expected.
In other cases the new version was properly built and portmaster
apparently just skipped the "make install" while claiming the opposite.
