Joe, thanks for your answer, but that is not what I meant: if a port is
flagged 'L', and I build it again, then it builds *without* leftovers.
Nothing changed in between, apart from the ports being dependency of
another port. Take for instance devel/nasm. I would not have installed
this package by myself, but it came as dependency with something else
(maybe Firefox3?). After building the 'master' port, devel/nasm had
leftovers (as did Firefox3 btw). After rebuilding devel/nasm (or
Firefox3) it build correctly *without* leftovers.
