Hi folks,

i ran into problems keeping my ports-collection up to date.
Although i did a portsnap fet and install i think there are obsolete an old
ports still on the disk.
I tried to compile a programm and it complained about an older version of a
depending package.
I deleted the whole ports-dir, did the fetch and extract again, problem
persists still.
Yes, i searched all the forums and read a lot about managing ports and
Right now i am stuck.
So, how do i delete really *all* ports and *all* packages at once?
Is it possible with doing a fectch and extract having the latest ports?
I was recommended to use only portmaster and not to use sysinstall after a
finished installation.
Well, i dont know.
