portsnap update won't update original /usr/ports

According to the handbook, one can do
and the update will work with a previously created ports tree;
I presume this includes one created during system install.
However, when I attempted this, portsnap complained:
/usr/ports was not created by portsnap.
You must run 'portsnap extract' before running 'portsnap update'.
Is there a way to use portsnap against this tree, or must I delete the
existing /usr/ports and do an extract first?
