I use 'make fetchindex'. For the last few days it seems that new INDEX
files are being generated but do not contain up-to-date information.
This is happening with both 4.x and 5.x. I do not have any boxes

with 'v', I run 'V' to get accurate results:
$ alias | grep version
alias v='portversion -v | grep -v "="'
alias V='pkg_version -v | grep -v "="'
emacs-21.3_4 > succeeds port (port has 21.3_3)
portlint-2.6.11 > succeeds port (port has 2.6.10_1)
squid-2.5.8 > succeeds port (port has 2.5.7_13)
$ ll /usr/ports/INDEX*
