OK. I was under the impression that portsnap would take care of that. I run
portsnap once every night.
Anyway, so now I ran portsnap manually and it seems to have rebuilt the INDEX
files (at least that's what the output indicates).
Trying portsnap -a still gives me "All ports are up to date" though. I seem to
be using the tools people recommend these days (portsnap, pkgng, portmaster)
but I'm obviously doing something wrong.
