Daniel Staal articulated:

Well, you might try and deinstall and then reinstall "portmanager".
Perhaps something got corrupted, although I don't know why that might
have happened.

I have "BATCH=yes" set in the "/etc/make.conf" file to avoid receiving
those annoying "config screens." Of course that does require you to
insure that your ports are configured the way you want them prior to
updating them. I don't find it a problem; however, others might.

By the way, how do you update your ports tree? Perhaps something got
corrupted there. I use portsnap myself, so you could use it to just
create a new tree thereby over writing the old one. Just a thought.
