The INDEX distributed by cvsup has always lagged behind ports up to a week or 
two - if that never bit in conjunction with portinstall, you have been 
lucky :).

Since recently, it is not being automatically updated via cvsup anymore at all 
(starting in May, IIRC). You can either build it with make index/portsdb -U 
(directly after cvsup is a good time to do it), or fetch a pre-built INDEX 
(which might lag behind the actual ports-tree as it used to before though) 
with make fetchindex.
