     Well, well.  I took the message shown above to the effect that that
file didn't exist there at face value.  But the file was indeed there, so
I guess portmaster or something that portmaster runs can lie.  After manually
deleting the file per your suggestion, math/arpack installed just fine.
     Thank you very much!  math/octave is now compiling as I write this.
