Thanks for the reply.

I use portsnap/portupgrade because it covers those ports which either don't 
have packages for whatever reason or where I compile with non-standard options 
(getting fewer and fewer fortunately.)  I usually do a pkg upgrade first and 
that often takes care of most updates.

As for LLVM, everything else seems to have updated ok, which is why I mentioned 
it, just in case there was an actual problem with the port.  I rarely see 
compile issues these days and it's entirely possible it's at my end.  Obviously 
I "fixed" it by manually installing the required ports, so I can't really 
duplicate it now.  Still, if no one else has sen the issue then it likely is an 
issue at my end rather than the port itself.
