INDEX-5 is deleted then reconstructed by "make index"

The incantation to update the ports is according to
the list (after cvsuping the sources):
1. make index
2. portsdb -u
3. portversion -l "<"
Nevertheless, the "make index" starts by deleting the
INDEX-5 file; then it recreates INDEX-5. This takes
some considerable time.
Would it be possible to jump over "1.make index" and
go straight to step 2 (it would save a lot of
time...)? Or there are other artifacts created by
"make index" process?
Thank you for any inputs,
