If I'm not wrong, portversion/pkg_version relies on ports index (man 8
portupgrade) which needs to be up to date in order for portversion to be
accurate. This is not done on a daily basis for the ports tree (as it
takes some time).
What you should try to do is check that your pkgdb is ok and fix any
then update the ports index (which takes a while)
Then run your portversion/pkg_version which should give more accurate
Hope this helps.
