Hey freebsd-ports,

Trying to run a `make index` in the root of my ports tree. What can or
should I do to fix it? My ports tree is up-to-date as of 09 Feb 2012
8:40 AM MST (GMT-7). Output below:

[shawn at fbsd-sec /usr/ports]$ uname -a
FreeBSD fbsd-sec 9.0-STABLE FreeBSD 9.0-STABLE #2: Fri Feb  3 11:44:52

Before reporting this error, verify that you are running a supported
version of FreeBSD (see http://www.FreeBSD.org/ports/) 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not supported with partial or out-of-date ports collections -- in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 FreeBSD.org 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".
