Your index file is out of date -- portsnap doesn't updated it because it
changes too fast to be suitable for keeping in SVN.

You need to

  # make fetchindex

from /usr/ports to download a pre-built index.  Or build your own, by
'make index'.  Or tell 'pkg version' to compare versions directly with
what's in your ports tree by 'pkg version -vP=' (but this will be quite
a bit slower).
