Yes, it is current (I mentioned this in the original email).

I run portsnap fetch update on a daily basis. This didn't solve the
problem after a week or so, so I decided to `rm -rf /usr/ports/*` and
run portsnap fetch extract to see if it helped. It did not.

Do you mean editing the Makefile and adding quotes? I'll try doing
that now and see if it works.
