Have a look at misc/porteasy. I use it to maintain my local subset of
the ports tree via anoncvs and am quite happy with it:

% wc -l /usr/ports/INDEX.pkgtools
     252 /usr/ports/INDEX.pkgtools

(INDEX.pkgtools is the result of portsdb -U, I keep the original INDEX
too to see what ports might be worth looking at.)
