Hmmmm, this looks oddly familiar.  In fact, it's EXACTLY what I'm seeing.

Oh, ok.  Well, I just did a port selfupdate, and I'm still getting the

For what it's worth, I have not upgraded, and until I have the money
to buy a BIG (at least 2--4 TB, as it will not be exclusively for
backups, it'll be partitioned for other stuff, too) external drive to
do a full backup, there's no chance that I will.

And for me, please extend that to include gimpshop.
