portupgrade works for me and portupgrade do not need to read the INDEX,
but I have my own portinstall script that is not come from the
portupgrade. I forgot about that I have different portinstall, so yes you
are right about the one from portupgrade's portinstall will not work.

I never have rebuild the INDEX at all, which it doesn't need for the
portupgrade to upgrade stuff.
As for XFree86-fontScalable, I just point it to xorg-fonts-truetype.
