[please CC any answers, I'm not subscribed] The same thing happened to me. It's probably a bug in the Makefile somewhere but I didn't have the time to look this up. After the 'make install' command in the /usr/ports/x11/kdebase3/ directory if you try something like this: [EMAIL PROTECTED]: ~] $ ll /usr/local/bin | grep mcopidl -r-xr-xr-x 1 root wheel 274456 May 9 17:20 mcopidl [EMAIL PROTECTED]: ~] $ you'll see that the mcopidl file will have a prefix of 'freebsd-i386-portbld' or something similar which is breaking all the other ports who are depending on this file. Actually, there are a lot of files affected by this so you should manually remove the prefix from all of them with the help of a shell script in order to fix the problem. Then you can continue normally with the ports who depend on kdebase.
