  These packages are probably old and indeed have no origins
recorded (long time ago origins were not saved in /var/db/pkg as there
was a one-to-one relation between package name and port relative

  The messages will go away once you update the packages. In case the
automatic update of a particular package fails on you, complete it by hands
and it will record origin upon `make install'.

  Anyway, this is an issue for -ports not -current.
