A fix for this problem was committed to RELENG_4 and RELENG_5 a few
days ago, HEAD some days before that -- so, yes cvsup and buildworld
to the head of one of those branches will fix things. I don't think
there are any plans to commit it to any other branches though.
Failing that, and now that portindex has been withdrawn, the only
other way to get past the problem is to configure portupgrade to use a
different hashing function. The simplest way to do that is just to
set an environment variable:
# setenv PORTS_DBDRIVER bdb1_hash
There are several variations on that -- different DB drivers, using
pkgtools.conf to put the settings into the environment etc., but those
have been covered on this and other FreeBSD lists and you should have
no trouble searching the archives for them.
