ahh yes.. I've run across a msg or two mentioning this... but that was
before I was trying to solve this problem so I was not paying close
attention at the time.
I just tried it. I did a fresh cvsup, then the 'make fetchindex' (which
pulled something out of the ether)... and then a 'portsdb -u'. The
portsdb finished almost immediately and provided no output!? good? bad?
dunno. So I moved on to 'pkgdb -F' which went well. I am currently
watching the portupgrade do its thing. It takes a while because I have
OpenOffice installed. I'll post back with my results.
Thanks for the assistance.
