This was fixed a tiny bit ago, and we all get notified automatically
whenever INDEX builds break, so reporting it to us becomes a bit redundant.
If you re-run cvsup (you might allow a bit of time for the commit to
propagate to all the cvsup mirrors), the INDEX should build fine. Also
note that under most circumstances you don't need to build your own
INDEX: cd /usr/ports && make fetchindex works fine for most people.
