Recently when i try to instal anything from ports, i get this error
(for rg. when i try to install smplayer):

sng# make install
-wq: not found
smplayer-0.6.8_1: Makefile error: category multimedia not in list of
valid categories. *** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/multimedia/smplayer.
sng# looks like this:

VALID_CATEGORIES+= accessibility afterstep arabic archivers astro audio
\ benchmarks biology cad chinese comms converters databases \
deskutils devel docs dns editors elisp emulators finance french ftp \
games geography german gnome gnustep graphics hamradio haskell hebrew
hungarian \ ipv6 irc japanese java kde kld korean lang linux lisp \
mail math mbone misc multimedia net net-im net-mgmt net-p2p news \
palm parallel pear perl5 plan9 polish portuguese ports-mgmt \

ukrainian vietnamese windowmaker www \
x11 x11-clocks x11-drivers x11-fm x11-fonts x11-servers x11-themes \
x11-toolkits x11-wm xfce zope

So i see that multimedia categry is on the list, i tryed to
delete /var/db/portsnap and /usr/ports and then execute portsnap fetch
extract, but i still get this error, any clue what is going on?
