On my FreeBSD box running 8.0-RELEASE-p3, I have tried to use PORTMASTER tool to upgrade my ports via packages only.
Then I added the following line to my user's .cshrc file and root's .cshrc file, and re-opened user's session : 

Then I typed this linde into a console : 
% sudo portmaster -PP -a -x openoffice

I past the output : 
===>>> The following actions will be taken if you choose to proceed:

===>>> Port directory: /usr/ports/sysutils/automounter
===>>> Checking package repository for latest available version

===>>> The newest available package (automounter-1.3.4)
       is older than the version in ports (automounter-1.4.3)

===>>> Try --packages-if-newer, or do not use -PP/--packages-only
===>>> Aborting update

===>>> Update for automounter-1.4.2 failed
===>>> Aborting update

The strange thing is the 'automounter-1.4.3' package is available on the FTP repository configured for PACKAGESITE.

Elsewhere, I have tested these FTP repositories (for PACKAGESITE variable) without success :

Thanks in advance for your help.
