portsnap & portupgrade

Hi peeps,

I've completed a new install of freebsd6.2 and started running portsnap as described in the handbook (the sequence portsnap fetch, portsnap extract and then finally portsnap fetch update).
At that time I expected that the ports tree would be update.

However, I expected portupgrade to be in the new location /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portupgrade but instead I still saw it at /usr/ports/sysutils/portupgrade. 

(I've had problems with that one the last weeks so I'm reluctant to use that).

But what is the case here? Does the way I've used portsnap not update the ports tree properly?

Thanks again,
