Personally, I used to love all the port tools:=C2=A0 portupgrade, portmaste=
r, etc.....
However, since the new packaging system came along....=C2=A0 I have found v=
ery little need for them.=C2=A0 I haven't checked lately, but when pkg came=
 out, they were in serious need of fixing, so I tried to see what pkg could=
 do and what shortcomings.... I haven't looked back.=C2=A0 Also, with very =
few exceptions, I haven't needed ports much any more.... :)=C2=A0=20

Is portmaster still useful, please?

Thank you.

	Yes.  I use it daily, including python ports.
	Unfortunately, I do not know the specific cause of your breakage.
