Portsdb error

Dear Sir,

I'm running a FreeBSD v4.8 machine on a 600Mhz/384MBRAM Pentium.  Never 
had any problems running CVSup before.  I used the 'ports_all' option in 
the ports_supfile file, and updated my ports collection with no problems.
  Upon doing a, "portsdb -Uu", I got an error regarding "x11/nvidia-driver" 
which I do not have installed or don't use.  I have attached a text file 
of the error.  The follow commands are the procedure that I use all the
time to update my ports collection and source tree.

cvsup -g -L 2 /root/ports_supfile
portsdb -F
portsdb -Uu
portversion -l "<"
portupgrade -arR

Anymore info you need, please don't hesitate to let me know, thanks. :)

Before reporting this error, verify that you are running a supported
version of FreeBSD (see http://www.FreeBSD.org/ports/) and that you
have a complete and up-to-date ports collection.  (INDEX builds are
not supported with partial or out-of-date ports collections -- in
particular, if you are using cvsup, you must cvsup the "ports-all"
collection, and have no "refuse" files.)  If that is the case, then
report the failure to ports at FreeBSD.org together with relevant
details of your ports configuration (including FreeBSD version,
your architecture, your environment, and your /etc/make.conf
settings, especially compiler flags and WITH/WITHOUT settings).

Note: the latest pre-generated version of INDEX may be fetched
automatically with "make fetchindex".
