Nope, I am seeing exactly the same thing. (And I am using different mirrors
than you are.) 
Since I too am only seeing this for src-all and not ports-all I
suspect it may be a problem with the svn->cvs export. (src-all is nowadays
maintained in a subversion repository and the changes automatically exported
to the cvs repository, while ports-all is still maintained directly in the
cvs repository.)

Note: I use cvsup to maintain a local copy of the cvs repository.
It is not clear if you too is doing that, or if you use cvsup to check out
just the latest version.
