--- Comment #3 from Gyrd Thane Lange <gyrd-se at thanelange.no> ---
I have just experienced the same. Using portupgrade to upgrade pkg from 1.2 to
1.3 nulled all the timestamps in the package database.

Jul 25 00:54:33 onyx pkg: pkg-1.2.7_2 deinstalled
Jul 25 00:54:35 onyx pkg-static: pkg-1.3.0 installed

root at onyx:/usr/ports # pkg query "%t %o" | grep -v ^0
1406242475 ports-mgmt/pkg
root at onyx:/usr/ports # pkg query "%t %o" | wc -l
     791
root at onyx:/usr/ports # pkg info | grep portupgrade
portupgrade-devel-20131212,3

11.0-CURRENT #2 r269075M: Thu Jul 24 22:35:47 CEST 2014 amd64

It appears the date resets happens the moment ports-mgmt/pkg itself is
upgraded. Subsequent installs of any port seemingly records the correct time. A
brute force fix is therefore to reinstall *all* the packages on the system, but
since I happen to have a backup copy of the local.sqlite package db I can use
SQL to restore the timestamps. Nothing else seems to be missing.
