Do a ls and see if you have a Makefile :)
You probably have only a readme.html file in that directory which is the
reason the directory itself wasn't deleted by cvsup.

it# grep nautilus /usr/ports/MOVED
www/nautilus-gtkhtml||2003-05-11|maintenance discontinued
x11-fm/nautilus||2003-07-15|removed as part of GNOME 1.4 desktop phase

The port /usr/ports/x11-fm/nautilus does not exist anymore.
Try /usr/ports/x11-fm/nautilus2.
