Have you switched from portupgrade and not deleted the associated metadata
files?  You should not have a port named pkgdb.db so it is not surprising
that /var/db/pkg/pkgdb.db/+CONTENTS would not have an ORIGIN.

Do you actually have a /var/db/pkg/pkgdb.db/+CONTENTS?
Does the problem exist with any real ports?
Does the problem go away if you delete /var/db/pkg/pkgdb.db?

I agree that portmaster shouldn't choke on files in /var/db/pkg, but
at least there is a fairly easy workaround.
