Please use poudriere or some other tool instead, there are some that
were designed for clean-room rebuilds, which portmaster was *not*
designed to do, and should not be turned into.

Just out of curiosity, as bad software build interactions shows itself only
in dirty environments, what is the tool that will catch this kind of bug
when portmaster have gone away?
