> Right, port keeps track of completed phases and does not re-run them. If "$ port destroot portname" failed at the "build" phase re-running "$ port destroot portname" will skip all phases before build. You will need to "$ port clean" or manually edit the port state file to have the "configure" phase execute.

I would like to suggest a change then that "-f" force a
reconfigure/remake etc.,
