Missing pkg-descr

Dear FreeBSD,

    Did something happen to the location for the "pkg-descr" so
that ports can't find it?  The following happens to me a lot,
for many packages:

===>  Installing for gmake-3.81_1
===>   Generating temporary packing list
** Missing pkg-descr for gmake-3.81_1.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/gmake.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/x11-toolkits/open-motif.
*** Error code 1

    A workaround is to add this package with pkg_add -rv, but this
is tiresome, since I must do it many times to finish a complicated
port (this time the port is java/jdk15).

    This happened on a new install of
FreeBSD poweredge.etaq.com 6.2-RC1 FreeBSD 6.2-RC1 #0: Thu Nov 16 05:12:08 
UTC 2006     root at opus.cse.buffalo.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/SMP  i386
