Description Philippe Michel 2019-04-06 14:25:28 UTC
Starting portmaster in /sys/conf (by chance, the shell where I ran it had been changed to this directory for an earlier task) causes the following error :

# portmaster openjpeg

===>>> The ports directory (
make: stopped in /usr/src/sys/conf) does not seem to contain a ports tree
===>>> Aborting update

Apparently portmaster looks for some files in some places, with $cwd early in the directories search list and /sys/conf contains an homonym.

  Make portmaster fall back to other locations if invoked in, e.g., /sys/conf.
