To generate the index you use the index target. We don't touch it with
our patches. The fetchindex target fetches the already generated index.
To have a consistent ports tree you should use the fetchindex target
together with the update target, so I don't see where it would make sense
to support a read-only ports tree in the fetchindex target.
