Hi Stefan,

I'm seeing the following for the latest portsnap update, running make 
index from ports root dir:

make[4]: don't know how to make describe. Stop
===> devel/py3c failed
*** [describe.devel] Error code 1

Observed on both a CURRENT and 12-RELEASE (latest) machine.

Haven't dug into why yet, but thought it may be related to this change.
