well, i can confirm i've had some issues with ports lately, too.
after realising new gnome was out i did portsnap and portaudit as usual.
i was very surprised to find out that portversion didn't show new ports
as well as portaudit didn't report on 2 vulnerabilities it reported a
day or two before. i tried to update ports db manually only to find some
errors. pkg_version correctly identified new ports. this state changed
in about half a day when suddenly portsnap & portversion reported all
new packages. otoh, portaudit still doesn't report on vulnerabilities it
reported a few days ago.
