Installing (actually upgrading) the linux_base port (from 7.1_2 to 7.1_3) 
fails with the following error:
unpacking of archive failed on file /proc: cpio: chown failed - Operation 
not supported
*** Error code 1
and thus the installation stops. If anybody has any idea why this is, I 
would love to hear it. Also, if you want to see the full output from 
portupgrade -v linux_base I wuold be happy to provide it. I am running:
$uname -a
FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASE-p7 FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASE-p7 #0: Tue

Let me know if you think this should go to -ports or -current.
Thanks in advance,
