Updating Ports Index

I installed perl, so I'm no longer getting the 'perl: not found' message
(any reason why perl isn't installed when installing the ports tree??)
The problem now is that the 'make index' command seems to take forever:
idfubar# make index
Generating INDEX-5 - please wait..
And then there's no additional output. Is the server working on the
request, or has the request hung?
