Hi Ryan,

would you mind to start over with a current ports-tree *and* a fresh portscout
DB, or do a cleanup and remove ports which are no longer in the tree?

For example the following 42 ports are removed since 2012-01-01 but are listed
for apache at .

apache-contrib apache13 apache13+ipv6 apache13-modperl apache13-ssl auth_ldap
mod_access_identd mod_access_referer mod_accounting mod_auth_cookie_mysql
mod_auth_external mod_auth_imap mod_auth_kerb mod_auth_mysql mod_auth_pam
mod_auth_pgsql mod_auth_useragent mod_backhand mod_bandwidth mod_bf
mod_blowchunks mod_bunzip2 mod_cgi_debug mod_color mod_curb mod_dav
mod_extract_forwarded_ap13 mod_filter mod_index_rss mod_layout mod_log_spread
mod_mp3 mod_mylo mod_perl mod_proxy_add_forward mod_put mod_python mod_sed
mod_sequester mod_shapvh mod_sqlinclude mod_ticket mod_trigger

mod_cvs -> removed but sends update requests for mod_cvs2
mod_macro -> removed but sends updates for mod_macro22
