Gawd. Not this *again*. Did you try searhing the web at all?
Doh no, since i try and read as much of -questions and -current I thought I would have caught it on the lists ;)
Thanks for the help (again)
Anyhow, a work-around is to:
% setenv PORTS_DBDRIVER=bdb1_hash
and then do all your portupgrade stuff as usual.
The problem is with the bdb1_btree functions in the base system. A fix has been committed to HEAD, RELENG_4 and RELENG_5. It won't be applied to RELENG_5_2, so either you're going to have to extract the patch yourself and apply it manually, or you can upgrade to one of the 5.3-BETAs.
