I had nothing but problems with "portmaster". It totally broke my KDE
installation even though I followed the instructions in the UPDATING
log to the letter. I eventually fell back to using my old faithful
"portmanager" ie, "portmanager x11/kde4 -f -l" and completely rebuilt
KDE. It rebuilt or installed a total of 536 ports. It works fine now and
there are no missing dependencies. I really don't understand why it is
not used more often. It corrects problems that neither "portmaster" or
"portupgrade" can cure.
