Now that you point that out, it does seem likely, as I hadn't switched
the system to pkg at that date, so the stated action was ... well, moot
(at the time).

And now textproc/clucene-qt4 & devel/qt4-testlib have been re-installed,
apparently succesfully.  (www/webkit-qt4 will take a bit longer than I
can hold my breath.... :-})

Thanks, both to you & to Matthew D. Fuller.
