I've run into similar experiences with other ports, and what I have
to get it to work is to deinstall the complaining port (in this
libcdio), and let the original port install it as a dependency instead 
of doing a "make reinstall".


Im afraid this didnt work either--whether libcdio is installed or not
(and installing it seems to work fine), any other port that
requires it tells me that it is installed and need to be
make deinstalled and make reinstalled. Yet this doesnt work.

Is there any other brute-force way to get around this? This
is getting difficult.

Thanks again, everyone.
