INDEX-5 within ports-tree is outdated long ago.  So various port
do not build until the user has generated a new one.  IMO with
5.3-RELEASE there should ship an INDEX-5 which is up-to-date.


untag revision 1.20 of INDEX-5 from RELEASE_5_3_0, 
build a new INDEX-5 for the RELEASE_5_3_0 ports tree and submit
this new one tagged for RELEASE_5_3_0.

btw: IMHO it should be an predefinied step in the releng-process
to build new index-files in the ports tree before tagging them
for an release.
