I guess the "frustration" is that if I ever have an aborted
installation, with that particular port, and then attempt a reinstall,
I am greeted by an obscure error message "fetch failed, please consult
this log" (even if --force is used), so I'm trying to work around

"Most" ports reinstall fine over aborted installations, but not this one.
