ports hosed

FreeBSD 5.2 installed from the cd a couple of weeks ago:

I guess I've stepped into it, somehow... the sequence was:

# cvsup -g -L 2 /root/ports-supfile      <completed OK>
# pkgdb -F                                         <OK>
# portupgrade -a                                <failed...>

The failure appeared to be the result of inability to find a distfile:

So I manually d/l this file from sourceforge, copied it into /usr/ports/
distfiles, and ran 'portupgrade -a' again. Got following error:

/usr/local/sbin/portupgrade:35:in `require': No such file to load -- pkgtools 
        from /usr/local/sbin/portupgrade:35

How do I get back to Kansas (there's no place like home)?
