Yes, I've had the same error, but not specifically "x11-wm/fvwm2
failed", and on 5.4-RELEASE.

cvsup your ports again, then try "portsdb -uU" again.

You could also "portsdb -uF" instead - that will fetch the index from
freebsd.org, instead of building it locally. I think that might
require that you cvsup ports-all, with no exclusions.
