ruby upgrade broke portsdb and pkgdb

I cvsupped my ports tree about 3 hrs ago and there was a ruby update.
After the update, I dont have permission to use portsdb or pkgdb , even as
root. I tried a re-cvsup about 10 minutes ago...

 Checkout ports/net/pythondirector/pkg-plist
 Edit ports/sysutils/apachetop/Makefile
  Add delta 1.8 2004. kuriyama
 Checkout ports/sysutils/apachetop/files/

ls -la /usr/local/sbin/pkgdb
-r-xr-xr-x  2 root  wheel  5565 Feb  8 09:25 /usr/local/sbin/portsdb

looks like neither portsdb or pkgdb was affected by the recent ruby
upgrade given the Feb 8 date, so I'm stumped.
