Double-check that you only have one copy of these ports installed. I've
seen this problem before, only to discover multiple copies of the same
port were installed. Some 'pkgdb -F' might be in order here ..
Also, I'd recommend 'make index' from /usr/ports instead of using
'portsdb -U'. Much more reliable!
However, it seems that INDEX builds are failing right now anyway. Kris
has been sending out emails to Ports all day with failure reports.
