Sorry for not posting the log file; I meant to do this and forgot:

I did, via portsnap update.

Tried this.

Will try this, though I am a bit reluctant to do an all-out update of 
everything!  For what it's worth, I had a perl module installed via CPAN 
(instead of the ports tree, because the port does not exist), about which 
portmanager seems to complain.  The port was for Net-DNS-Async.  portmanager 
asks me to pkg_delete and re-install.  I will try that and perhaps perl will 
then build/update properly.
