Hi folks,
how are you all doing? My AMD64 system running FreeBSD
6.1 gave me a very strange error when trying to update
my ports. I used the cvsup -g -L -2 command and
everything went smooth, but after I did the portsdb
-Uu command this is what I get:

portsdb -Uu

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not supported with partial or out-of-date ports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
collection, and have no "refuse" files.)  If that is
the case, then
report the failure to ports at FreeBSD.org together with
details of your ports configuration (including FreeBSD
your architecture, your environment, and your
settings, especially compiler flags and WITH/WITHOUT

Note: the latest pre-generated version of INDEX may be
automatically with "make fetchindex".

*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports.

failed to generate INDEX!
portsdb: index generation error

I already tried the make fetchindex but that gives the
same error.

My make.conf looks like:

The last time I had troubles is when I tried to
compile the port scilab and it complained about my tk
installation. I left it like that.

Hope somebody can help. Here's my uname -a :
