portupgrade slow?

I was upgrading an old machine (P-II 233), and tried to use portupgrade to
update the installed ports.

However, it is now only building portupgrade's own _index_ for the building
and that takes hours already. 

I know it is a lot of metadata in a lot of files, but this is _really_
extreme. Why is portupgrade so horribly, horribly slow?
