Having completely scragged my ports area following various changes to
pkg/pkgng/etc, and being unable to "sysinstall" it from CD (not found for
some reason) or via FTP (not found on server etc), I found a pristine copy
of ports.txz and unpacked it (sigh, yet another compression scheme), after
renaming the old directory.
Anyway, what do I do now? Assume that many ports have been installed, and
that the databases etc are probably a dog's breakfast, per the conflicts
that I have posted here earlier. If it helps, I have a list of those
ports that were installed, and hopefully the dependencies will be taken
care of automagically.
