Far be it from me to discourage your creativity, but you could condense
your script down to:

find /usr/ports -name README.html -delete
find /usr/ports -type d -empty -delete

You might want to run cvsup in between, to let it delete any directories
it knows about first, but that's not essential.

I do a lot of command line shell scripting myself, so it's definitely a
valuable tool, but sometimes it helps to know that there are other
pre-packaged solutions available.
