This is because your INDEX file is stale (it's almost always stale,
actually), but INDEX gets updated periodically (once every two-three
weeks or so) to combat this problem.  Use `portsdb -Uu` to update your
index... it takes about 15-20min of really hard disk grinding (I do it
about nightly on a nice SCSI machine and then scp the resulting INDEX
to a farm of boxen).
