Hi all,

portsdb -Uu fails on my system with the following error: 

Updating the ports index ... Generating INDEX.tmp - please 
wait..fr-mozilla-flp-1.7_1: "/usr/ports/www/mozilla-gtk2" non-existent -- 
dependency list incomplete
===> french/mozilla-flp failed
*** Error code 1

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not supported with partial or out-of-date ports collections -- in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".

failed to generate INDEX!
portsdb: index generation error

This is immediately after a cvsup of the entire ports tree--the system is an 
Athlon Classic running FreeBSD 5.2.1.  The only non-standard part of 
make.conf is a CPUTYPE?=athlon flag.
