Problem updating emulators/wine-compholio from 1.7.34,1 to 1.7.35,1

After updating my laptop from:

FreeBSD 10.1-STABLE FreeBSD 10.1-STABLE #1451  r277692M/277692:1001506: Sun Jan 25 04:35:42 PST 2015     root at  i386


FreeBSD 10.1-STABLE FreeBSD 10.1-STABLE #1452  r277722M/277745:1001506: Mon Jan 26 05:37:52 PST 2015     root at  i386

(as part of the usual daily routine), I then attempted to update
the installed ports (for which I use portmaster).

The ports tree is an SVN working copy of the head of the ports tree at
r377931; I had previously (yesterday) updated the installed ports as of

The only installed port that "portmaster -ad" found suitable for updating
was emulators/wine-compholio:
0;portmaster: All >> (1)^G
===>>> The following actions will be taken if you choose to proceed:
        Upgrade wine-compholio-1.7.34,1 to wine-compholio-1.7.35,1

===>>> Proceed? y/n [y] 

The process ran for a while, then terminated in a way I don't recall
having previously seen:

Well.  That was ... peculiar and annoying...  but I was trying to
just get things done so I could get on with my day, so I "portmaster
devel/git" (which informed me that I already had git-2.2.2_1 installed
-- apparently something (else?) has it as a dependency, as I have
no use for git in and of itself -- but portmaster re-built and
-installed it anyway (as I had requested).

It should thus come as little surprise that a re-try for updating
wine-compholio-1.7.34,1 to wine-compholio-1.7.35,1 failed in exactly
the same way.

On this system, I only use portmaster to update the installed ports,
using a ports tree mounted on /common/ports (/usr/ports is a symlink
that points to the real location); the ports tree is (as noted
above) an SVN working copy, using a private local mirror of the
FreeBSD SVN repository that is updated nightly.

Taking a look at emulators/wine-compholio/Makefile, I see thaht it
was last updated:

r375756 | dbn | 2014-12-28 12:39:48 -0800 (Sun, 28 Dec 2014) | 10 lines

It appears that the update that catalyzed this was to emulators/wine-devel;
its Makefile shows:

r377820 | gerald | 2015-01-24 12:32:15 -0800 (Sat, 24 Jan 2015) | 11 lines

I see a note in the commit log that "... files/patch-alternate-toolchain
is not applicable any more; remove it." -- but it's not there to

g1-240(11.0-C)[14] ls files/

So I'm a bit perplexed.

(I only have emulators/wine-compholio as a dependency for
emulators/pipelight, which I had installed as part of an experiment
to see if I could get Netflix to play on the laptop I use for just
about everything.)

Any suggestions?
