#revupgrade_mode        rebuild

I guess that's the culprit; how should it be nobbled?  Or perhaps "not" 
should be honoured instead?

BTW, I never touch any system stuff, and that includes the macports files 
(I know my limits).  Mac has /opt/local, FreeBSD has /usr/local, dunno 
what Linux has (never installed custom software), and I have no idea how 
Wintel does it (and have no wish to know).
