Another active port shown as "orphaned"

r> pkg version -vl\?
emacs25-25.3_1,3                   ?   orphaned: editors/emacs

Why is emacs showing up as orphaned when it clearly is not? And only when
pkg is used to maintain ports and the index. On the system where I manually
update ports and get the index with "make fetchindex", the port is not
# pkg version -v | grep emacs
emacs-25.3_2,3                     =   up-to-date with index

I'm not entirely sure what is going on here, but it is annoying and emacs
is not getting updated.
