after the removal of wxgtk28 (commit 
ba3f1e00370d69b693977b156905673d6ca1f07c), I can no longer build the INDEX:

Before reporting this error, verify that you are running a supported
version of FreeBSD (see and that you
have a complete and up-to-date ports collection.  (INDEX builds are
not supported with partial or out-of-date ports collections.
If that is the case, then
report the failure to together with relevant
details of your ports configuration (including FreeBSD version,
your architecture, your environment, and your /etc/make.conf
settings, especially compiler flags and OPTIONS_SET/UNSET settings).

Note: the latest pre-generated version of INDEX may be fetched
automatically with "make fetchindex".

*** Error code 1

make: stopped in /usr/ports

This also happens with a freshly checked out ports tree.

The line numbers make is complaining about haven't been touched. I don't 
see what's wrong.

Anyone else seeing this? Any hints on what could be the issue?
