The -d option refers to deleting stale distfiles, and -v is verbose, so 
I'm not sure how this is directly relevant.

Well it seems pretty obvious that there is a problem with one of your 
dependencies, but that port has a lot of them, which would make it hard to 
diagnose exactly which one is causing the problem. I would suggest that 
you do this: portmaster -Dv -e paraview-3.6.1
and let portmaster uninstall all of the dependencies that are only related 
to that port. when that's done, do the same command line with your 
installed version of cmake. Then try reinstalling paraview.

If that still doesn't work you'll need to do some digging to determine 
what is failing, and then you can reinstall that port too.

hope this helps,
