Hello list.

I've upgraded a system from 8.0 to 8.1 and it went well :-)

Followed the portmaster manpage on how to reinstall my ports.

When I try to do  portmaster `cat ~/installed-port-list` I get a prompt

CORRECT>portmaster `cut ~/installed-port-list` (y|n|e|a)?
I choose n and hit enter and get
cat: Command not found.
portmaster:  Command not found.

I've done
cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portmaster
make deinstall
make clean
make install clean

And stil the problem persists! Portmaster is the only installed port

portmaster --check-port-dbdir gives
Illegal option --check-port-dbdir

$PATH gives
Command not found.

again the command not found!

I'm a little lost, any suggestions?
