'cause the ports don't work...

i've had a good couple of problems installing ports, either because of
compilation issues, or because they were just not there.
is there something i am missing?
zB, i need to install stlport, and a quick search on www.freshports.org
shows that it should be as easy as
pkg_add -r stlport-gcc
when i try that, however, it fails real quick with a 'unable to fetch'
it is not alone in this, some port packages work. some not.
when that fails, i typically go into the relevant /usr/ports/ directory
and go through the make process.
but for a port whose package failed, more often than not the make
process fails too.
am i missing something?
i regularly update everything with portupgrade -arR and with cvsup.
(on that note - portversion -l "<" tells me that openoffice is behind,
but when i try to portupgrade it also fails...)
