Well normally you would use a mirror -- I misread that as cvsup not
portsdb.  The -F option:

     --fetchindex   Fetch the ports index file called INDEX from the
		    official site.

If you haven't tweaked your ports tree you should be able to just to
portsdb -u for now.

Work like you don't need the money,
love like you'll never get hurt,
and dance like nobody's watching.
