Yesterday i upgraded the sources on a server from 5.2.1 to 5.3,
this is the output from uname -a:

FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE-p10 FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE-p10 #0: Mon Apr 25 16:40:42 PDT 2005     rvega at  i386

Today i am upgrading ports, after cvsup the sources, make index fails
on two ports with same error (german/ispell-new and mail/mls), i don't
use them so i removed them from the ports tree.

steeler# cd /usr/ports
steeler# make index
Generating INDEX-5 - please wait.."/usr/ports/Mk/", line 4847: warning: duplicate script for target "add-plist-post" ignored
===> mail/mls failed
*** Error code 1

Before reporting this error, verify that you are running a supported
version of FreeBSD (see 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not supported with partial or out-of-date ports collections -- in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 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".

*** Error code 1

Stop in /var/ports.
