What are you trying to do here?  You mention updating, but the command 
"make clean" only removes a working subdirectory after compilation. 
ctrl-t is used to display the current state of certain builds; typically 
this would be invoked like "make install clean."  Are you trying to 
build and install this port, update it, or something else?

Whether you have already installed pciids or are just updating it, 
"portmaster misc/pciids" should work.
