Ahh, many many thanks to you both! So it was just a glitch? Thank 
goodness I saw that message and felt like an old man already being put 
out to pasture!

And I can report... GREAT SUCCESS after the ports tree update everything 
previously mentioned worked flawlessly for me.

Much gratitude goes out to everyone working on all the great 
modernizations being integrated, tested and coming down the pipeline. 
FreeBSD has always been and still is AMAZINGLY stable and solid in light 
of its rapid pace of innovation.
