Ouch! It finally did stop - there were error messages with details & suggestions to mail files developers/maintainers, etc - all of which I ignored :( I decided I could clean this up by doing an "update" (via CVSup), followed by an "upgrade" (via portupgrade). So here's what I did: # cvsup -g -L 2 /root/ports-supfile -- which completely successfully, followed by: # portupgrade -a -- which ended badly... a long list of packages (approx 140) that did not install due to * (skipped) or ! (failed). Some of them look pretty important: ! sysutils/cdrtools (cdrtools-2.0.3) (unknown build error) * devel/ORBit2 (ORBit2-2.8.2) etc, etc. Looking at the terminal log, it appears that the wheels came off because this port couldn't be fetched: docbook-xsl-1.62.4 What should my next move be?
