"Make search" broke?

	I've been losing my mind over this.... I even rm -rf 'd my
/usr/ports and downloaded a new tarball... but still, something's
borked.  I was looking at samba versions, and happened to do a "make
search name=samba", from my /usr/ports directory.  I got this back..

Port:   samba-2.2.8a_1
Path:   /usr/ports/net/samba
Info:   A free SMB and CIFS client and server for UNIX
Maint:  ports at FreeBSD.org
B-deps: autoconf-2.13.000227_5 cups-base- expat-1.95.7
gettext-0.13.1_1 gmake-3.80_2 jpeg-6b_1 libiconv-1.9.1_3 libtool-1.3.5_2
m4-1.4_1 perl-5.8.2_5 png-1.2.5_3 popt-1.6.4_2 tiff-3.6.1_1
R-deps: cups-base- expat-1.95.7 gettext-0.13.1_1 jpeg-6b_1
libiconv-1.9.1_3 perl-5.8.2_5 png-1.2.5_3 popt-1.6.4_2 tiff-3.6.1_1

OK... fine, then I went and cvs up'd and did the same thing again....
Same result.  Weird, because I remember installing from ports
/usr/ports/net/samba and smbd -V yielded 2.2.11 (something), not
2.2.8....!?  So, I rm -rf 'd my /usr/ports and downloaded a new tarball,
tar zxvf 'd it back into /usr, and voila!.... Same thing.  What the hell
am I doing wrong here?
