'make search name' fails to show port info

# portversion -v icewm
icewm-1.2.0                 <  needs updating (port has 1.2.11)

# make search name=icewm

#  ls /usr/ports/x11-wm/icewm/
Makefile  distinfo  files     pkg-descr pkg-plist

Why does the command 'make search name=icewm' not show the port info?
Other ports seem to work:

# portversion -v gsfonts
gsfonts-5.10                <  needs updating (port has 6.0)

# make search name=gsfonts
Port:   gsfonts-6.0
Path:   /usr/ports/print/gsfonts
Info:   Fonts used by GNU Ghostscript (or X)
Maint:  ports at FreeBSD.org
Index:  print
B-deps: XFree86-3.3.6_11 p5-type1inst-0.6.1

I ran cvsup, 'pkgdb -F' and 'portsdb -Uu' on august 26th. portsdb
complained about duplicated entries as usual, but nothing more.

# ls -l /usr/ports/INDEX*

-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  4036779 Aug 25 19:39 /usr/ports/INDEX-5
