4.x has been dropped from support by the ports tree. Several months
ago now. It's never going to work,

For a 4.x to 6.x upgrade, your most effective route is generally to
backup your important files and data, and then nuke and repave your
server -- ie. just do a clean install of 6.2 overwriting the old
system -- then use csup(1)[*] to grab the latest RELENG_6 source and
buildworld in the usual way.
Given the price of hard drives nowadays, you could just buy yourself
a new one and install 6.2 on that -- gives you an easy back-out
route to 4.11 if it all goes horribly wrong...
[*] That's a replacement for cvsup, written in C and part of the
base system in 6.x.
