You need to update your ports.  Read the handbook.  I would strongly 
suggest the "portsnap" utility, now standard equipment with 6.x.  I 
feel like a dumb shit because I just discovered it yesterday, and had 
been using the much slower and ackward cvsup method.

Basically, delete your current /usr/ports;  portsnap fetch; portsnap 
extract; portsnap update.  Repeat the fetch & update as needed in the future.

Ports currently has 3.0.21b but '22 should be available in a couple 
days.  I forget the details, but it was a fairly obscure security 
patch I wasn't worried about.
