Have you tried replacing the portsdb-sequence with `portindex && 


- cvsup (or whatever tool you use)
- portindex
- portindexdb
- portversion -vL = (or whatever switches you use)

The upside to using portindex is that it merges changes instead of 
building the entire index every time. So your first run will take quite 
some time, but your following runs will run quite a bit faster.

HTH and good luck... Nico
