That is true. But that is the answer because you would not build 
everything from the portstree.

This is quite easy. synth failed. Next option is poudriere. The other 
option is to contact marino@ and report the issue and wait for the fix. 
Till then you could not use your machines.

My answer gives you back a working machine, the possibility to report 
the issue and wait for the issue. And at least switch back to synth 
again. :)
