I've problem with command `make fetchindex' in /usr/ports:

root:~# cd /usr/ports/
root:/usr/ports# make fetchindex
fetch: Not Found
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports.

This's one of my old version FreeBSD 4.10-STABLE. My questions is:

Where's I should find that INDEX.bz2?, is that possible I'am still
running FreeBSD 4.X with  ports collection uptodate too (Of couse with
FreeBSD 4.10-STABLE ports/not other newer FreeBSD version).

I've already to fetch ports collection manually:
root:/usr# mv ports ports.old
root:/usr# fetch
root:/usr# tar zxvf ports.tar.gz
root:/usr# cd ports
root:/usr/ports# make index
Generating INDEX - please wait..===> arabic/ae_fonts_mono failed
*** Error code 1
===> accessibility/at-poke failed
*** Error code 1
2 errors

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not supported with partial or out-of-date ports collections -- in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

So, how to fix this problem?, any suggestion?

Thanks you.
