I have tried several times. I thought I had changed successfully under 8.2, but evidently not. I can't get it to compile now, and postmaster doesn't see it.

 # portmaster -l | grep pkg 
pkg: not found
===>>> pkgconf-0.9.3

The directory does not exist. Portmaster does not see the port as being installed. It seems to me that it is listed as a dependency by something else.

# portmaster -l | grep clutt
pkg: not found
===>>> clutter-1.0.10_2
===>>> clutter-gtk-0.10.2_5
===>>> py26-clutter-1.0.0_2
===>>> py26-cluttergtk-0.9.3_2
===>>> clutter-cairo-0.8.2_1

I suppose I can delete py26-clutter (or heck, all of them).
