portmaster question

I went to upgrade my flash port this A.M. (the *only* thing I do from 
ports, no pkg available due to licensing issues). I crapped out part-way 
through with pkg-vulnerability issues of some of the dependencies. I 
tried to restart the process w/ commands to (try to) tell it to ignore 
those issues, but it doesn't think it has the libflash-plugin port. it 
is indeed there in the ports tree. I have done a few attempted cleanups, 
to no avail. If I delete /usr/ports entirely & begin again, will that 
work OK ? Would a 'portsnap fetch update' work correctly to re-populate 
the ports tree ? Last effort:

[root at kabini1, /etc, 10:14:16am] 360 % portmaster -m 
DISABLE_VULNERABILITIES=yes www/linux-c6-flashplugin 
graphics/linux-c6-cairo x11/linux-c6-xorg-libs 
security/linux-c6-cyrus-sasl2 security/linux-c6-openssl-compat 

===>>> /usr/ports/www/linux-c6-flashplugin does not exist
===>>> Aborting update

[root at kabini1, /etc, 10:14:19am] 361 % uname -a
FreeBSD kabini1.local 9.3-RELEASE-p21 FreeBSD 9.3-RELEASE-p21 #0: Tue

[root at kabini1, /etc, 10:21:00am] 362 %

w/ the portmaster command from the 1st effort to upgrade, interspersed 
w/ reads of the man page. Any clues appreciated. TIA & have a nice 
weekend :-) ....
