Thanks, that fixed my issue!  
Why did this happen anyway?

	This is an ongoing issue with portsdb/ruby.
	The way I see it, there are some easy fixes out there
	0. install portindex
	1. cvsup (as you did)
	2. run portindex - this takes a while the 1st time.
	3. run portindexdb
	4. pkgdb -afuF (or what ever parms you use)
	5. portversion -vL= (this dumps out the ports that need updating)
	6. portupgrade -a (or what ever parms you use.
	Another way: - this changes the default database (btriev) to hash
	setenv PORTS_DBDRIVER bdb1_hash
	then run your portdb -u
	In fact, I opted for this one. I now run my ports tree updating scripts
	as I did BEFORE these issues.
	Best regards,
	The organization of any program reflects the organization
	of the people who developed it.
