Dear fellow FreeBSDers,

I have recently started to get the message in the subject when installing
ports from source. I have scanned the mailinglists and other resources and
found a few others with these particular problems. And I've tried most of
the tricks mentioned there (excluding those which sounds a bit dangerous to
conduct on a semi-production system) - including reinstalling gettext etc. I
do not have the Compat4X clause in make.conf so this shouldn't be part of my

This is a 5.4-Stable machine upgraded from 4.8 during the summer, and so far
it conducted and performed extremely well.  I am rebuilding the world and
kernel right now against the latest 5.4-STABLE sources. Then I am going to
try a portupgrade  -fa, but if this doesn't permanently solve my problems, I
would like to hace som suggestions on where to go next.

All hints, tips of suggestions are most welcome.
