	portsdb(1) fails to update the ports INDEX when aparently any port
        points to another port that doesn't exist.
	Presently, if devel/ruby-cvs or japanese/sdic is present, portsdb(1)
        fails to update the ports INDEX.	
	To make portsdb(1) it work, delete the offending ports. 

Here is the error info:

ruby18-cvs-0.2: "/usr/ports/devel/ruby-flex_rb" non-existent -- dependency list incomplete
===> devel/ruby-cvs failed
*** Error code 1

ja-sdic-2.1.2: "/usr/ports/japanese/edict-sdic" non-existent -- dependency list incomplete
===> japanese/sdic failed
*** Error code 1
