yep. tom, it sounds as though kent may be right here. you should probably
cvsup a fresh ports tree, then 'portdb -Uu'. (though you could probably
get away with just 'portdb -Uu', no sup) in fact, if you're not
already doing it, you should be issuing 'portsdb-Uu' after every cvsup.
this will synch your INDEX with the ports you've just cvsup'd.
note: recently, there has been a lot of talk about how 'portsdb -Uu' takes
so long to run and how everyone wished it could be done a little more
quickly. well, some kind individual has developed a program which does just
that (/usr/ports/sysutils/portindex). it is still fairly new and you may
run into the odd kink as it continues to stabilitize, yet the program makes
synchronizing INDEX significantly faster (except, perhaps, on it's first
run, because it builds its database).
hope this helps,
