hello radim, ports,

despite several cvsups, the most recent at 16:10 EST, i am encountering a
strange message when trying to build the latest version of portindex (15).

1) /usr/ports/sysutils/portindex# make deinstall clean

2) /usr/ports/sysutils/portindex# make install clean
===>  portindex-15 is marked as broken: Updateall needs pkghistory package.

3) /usr/ports/sysutils/portindex# portinstall portindex
[Updating the pkgdb <format:bdb1_btree> in /var/db/pkg ... - 322 packages
found (-6 +4) (...).... done]
** Port marked as IGNORE: sysutils/portindex:
        "is marked as broken: Updateall needs pkghistory package"

4) afaics, cvsweb doesn't show this port as broken.

5) portsdb -Uu does not fix the problem.

i'm not sure what updateall or pkghistory are, but i hope that this
information helps.
