Ouch! It finally did stop - there were error messages with details & 
suggestions to mail files developers/maintainers, etc - all of which I 
ignored :(

I decided I could clean this up by doing an "update" (via CVSup), followed by 
an "upgrade" (via portupgrade). So here's what I did:

# cvsup -g -L 2 /root/ports-supfile

 -- which completely successfully, followed by:

# portupgrade -a

 -- which ended badly... a long list of packages (approx 140) that did not 
install due to * (skipped) or ! (failed). Some of them look pretty important:
! sysutils/cdrtools (cdrtools-2.0.3)    (unknown build error)
* devel/ORBit2 (ORBit2-2.8.2)
etc, etc.

Looking at the terminal log, it appears that the wheels came off because this 
port couldn't be fetched:


What should my next move be?
