I've got the following problem:
After executing

	/usr/local/bin/cvsup -g -L 2 /root/upgrading/ports-supfile

having no "refuse" files and "ports-all" in my ports-sup file,
I got the following result:

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not supported with partial or out-of-date ports collections -- in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

portsdb: index generation error

Everything was working well with cvsup, until I tried to install
ntfsprogs. I did a make config and I set the option for the
support (or use) of gnomevfs2, and since then I cannot rebuild my ports
tree. I can't even perform a make clean in /usr/ports/sysutils/ntfsprogs

I'm using FreeBSD 5-stable ports.

My uname -ai output is:

FreeBSD valinor.lan 5.3-RELEASE FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE #0: Thu Mar 10 21:39:38 EET 2005
root at valinor.lan:/usr/src/sys/i386/compile/ELENDIL  i386 GENERIC

and my /etc/make.conf settings are:

# added by use.perl 2005-03-11 01:30:16

Can someone help me out?
