For those updating to recent 8-current, make fetchindex fails as follows:

% cd /usr/ports
% make fetchindex
fetch: http://www.FreeBSD.org/ports/INDEX-8.bz2: Not Found
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports.
%

For short-term solution: fetch http://www.FreeBSD.org/ports/INDEX-7.bz2
manually, bunzip2 it, then rename INDEX-7 to INDEX-8 and copy to /usr/ports.
