I reported this problem around 10 am. yesterday. Sometime around 2 pm. a
patch was submitted. An updated version of 'portmanager' was in the
port's system by 4 pm. Personally, I consider that a rather quick fix.

Yes, you will have to do a regular 'make install' to get the newer
version installed. You have to do a 'make deinstall' to remove the older
version first though.
