Yes, unless of course you randomly deleted files in the path where
MacPorts keeps those historic copies of Portfiles, or there's a bug in
the code that maintains these files.
The problem is that we don't see the difference. The code that procudes
the error is more or less
which can fail either because the file isn't there, or because the code
in the file failed.
