 Those problems are related to other ports, databases/akonadi or
 deskutils/kdepimlibs4 which refuse to compile not finding qmake (which
 is installed as qmake-qt4).
 =46rom time to time I realized running CURRENT, it is wise to recompile
 ports. So I did with xorg and xdm since they had been compiled in the
 CLANG 3.1 era and now we are with CLANG 3.2 and with libc++.
 When I performed a "portmaster -w -r xorg xdm", I found myself lost with
 the reported error and with a deleted pkg database entry for xdm.
 x11/xdm wasn't even reported installed then - but the binaries of the
 new build were obviously there.
 It is not the first time that portmaster deletes a port and at the very
 end it fails and refuses updating the database, like it happened with
