Multiple partial checkouts is not the same as one big checkout.  The 
.svn directory only exists in the base directory of the checkout.

Back up /usr/ports (for local changes), delete the entire directory, 
then check out the entire directory.
Unfortunately I forgot to relocate /packages/ and /distfiles/ first, so
they have been restored from yesterday's backup.
Also there is an INDEX-9.move_distfiles  (zero length file) for the next
time, as a reminder, as I'd move INDEX* out of the way first.
