Sorry I didn't get a chance to reply yesterday. I now have the strace port installed but have hit a small problem (as mentioned by Joshua Tinnin). I'm not familiar with strace either and is the error I see:

# strace portupgrade vim
strace: open("/proc/...", ...): No such file or directory
trouble opening proc file

A man procfs, was informative, but I'm a bit lost now on how to proceed...

Certainly have.

I got to step 5 and the problem was still happening:

"you can always deinstall portupgrade and all the ruby stuff (run "pkg_delete -r ruby-\*") and reinstall portupgrade as a last resort."

That didn't work, but ofcourse, I used "pkg_add -r ruby-devel".

Any ideas on how to proceed with the strace would be greatly appreciated.
