Yes, never would seem normal, esp. if the Portfile is there when you check :)

Are you running base from SVN?

I've looked into putting the offending statement (`$workername eval set user_options($opt) $val`) in a loop, something like

$workername eval set user_options($opt) ""
foreach v $val {
        $workername eval set user_options($opt) "$user_options($opt) $v"

but I haven't gotten that right yet.
