I finally found the problem to the make index problem I was having. The
issue was that make index barfs with:

make describe barfs with:

The problem turned out to be the NOPORTDOCS flag in my /etc/make.conf.
With that flag present (hoping not to waste space on port
documentation), the make index build fails since... uhm... sometime
beginning of February.

However, with NOPORTDOCS commented out in /etc/make.conf, the make index
(and portdb command) run without any errors (except the usual missing
dependencies for other languages).

I'm posting this to the lists as well in case someone else has the same
issue. Anyone with "make index" problems is encouraged to remove the
NOPORTDOCS flag and try again.
