Portupgrade Error

Hi. I cvsupped my ports collection today and started the portupgrade 
process. I ran a `portsdb -Uu` and let it finish, and the output telling 
me to report to this email address is below.

FreeBSD Version: 5.4-RELEASE
Architecture: amd64

I did a portupgrade a week or two ago and everything went fine, so I'm 
not sure what would cause this.

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not supported with partial or out-of-date ports collections -- in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