Yeah -- that's a mistake in the aureal-kmod port.  The fix is to wait
for the maintainer / ports committers to commit a fix to the ports
tree and then cvsup again.  In the mean time, you can just ignore the
error message and the rest of the ports tree will work as well as

In detail the problem is this -- quoting from the port Makefile:

    PORTNAME=       aureal-kmod
    PORTVERSION=    1.5
    PORTREVISION=   4.1        <---- This item should be an integer value

At least, that's according to the latest Porter's Handbook and bsd.port.mk
