I'll answer you questions in turn: Q: have you mounted /usr/ports readonly? ANS: No did you forget to set WRKDIRPREFIX=/somewhere when you have a readonly /usr/ports? No, I didn't forget, nor do I know anything about doing this. I have been keeping the ports tree the same way since FreeBSD 4.3 Rel, and have always been able to run "make clean" in /usr/ports as an ordinary user - except over the last few days. I fear that something else might well be afoot. I have copied the listed port maintainer in my original e-mail, and I hope to hear from him at some point.
