ok, i did:

cd /usr/ports
make fetchindex

amongst other things, and every time, running 'portsdb -Uu'
cripples the machine. i'm not too keen to see where exactly
it dies since it'll result in another hard shutdown.

but, if i just run portversion, it creates the INDEX-5.db,
so i'm not sure why i'm running 'portsdb -Uu' in the first
