As per my earlier email, list is completely trustworthy, but you need  
to understand what it does. It just gives you concise information  
about the latest version of the port you've specified. Int his case,  
by using the installed pseudo-port, you're specifying the same port  
many times, and it gives the same same answer back for each. (The  
list action completely ignores the extra meta-information about the  
port version which is returned by the installed pseudo-port).
