According to "man portmaster" there are some options that
control the behaviour regarding the use of INDEX:
skip fetching the INDEX file
use INDEX-[7-9] exclusively to check if a port is up to date
use the INDEX for status, but double-check with the port
do not try to use /usr/ports. For updating ports when no /usr/ports
directory is present the -PP|--packages-only option is required. See
the ENVIRONMENT section below for additional requirements.
This means --index-only is to be used when using portmaster for
binary installs without an installed ports collection.
