portsdb -Uu -> Stop.

today I cvsup-ed one of my 5.3 systems by using the same procedure as
many times before:

cvsup -g -L 2 ./ports-supfile
pkgdb -F
portsdb -Uu

The first two steps (cvsup, pkgdb) went OK without error, but during
portsdb -Uu I get an error as follows:

# portsdb -Uu
Updating the ports index ... Generating INDEX.tmp - please wait..apsfilter-7.2.6
: "/usr/ports/print/acroread5" non-existent -- dependency list incomplete
===> print/apsfilter failed
*** Error code 1
1 error

Before reporting this error, verify that you are running a supported
version of FreeBSD (see http://www.FreeBSD.org/ports/) and that you
have a complete and up-to-date ports collection.  (INDEX builds are
not supported with partial or out-of-date ports collections -- in
particular, if you are using cvsup, you must cvsup the "ports-all"
collection, and have no "refuse" files.)  If that is the case, then
report the failure to ports at FreeBSD.org together with relevant
details of your ports configuration (including FreeBSD version,
your architecture, your environment, and your /etc/make.conf
settings, especially compiler flags and WITH/WITHOUT settings).

Note: the latest pre-generated version of INDEX may be fetched
automatically with "make fetchindex".

What can I do against this error?

Thanks much in advance for any clue,
