An update.....
4 servers have the problem in my previous post, and I've yet to find a way
to use portupgrade.
Only answers I've received were to use packages via pkgng. (Not an option).

For the other 9 servers, I tried it a little differently.
    -  switch to pkgng
    -  svn base and ports
    -  upgrade base
    -  upgrade ports with portupgrade.

Worked fine for 8 of 9.

Will be rolling the 5 broke servers back (yes, we have bkups) ;)

Will leave the 8 working ones running pkgbg, and see how it goes.

Still wondering, how to repair the database w/o pkgfb -F so portupgrade
will work?

And as I understand,  poudriere must be used instead of portupgrade to
create packages?
