I had a similar problem some time ago. Some intermediate combination of
pkg-tools/ruby/portupgrade installed bad metadata. The following
helped me identity the ports with bad files:

find /var/db/pkg -type f -exec iconv -t US-ASCII {} > /dev/null \;

Reinstalling the indicated ports solved it for me. I'm currently using
pkg-tools, ruby19 and portupgrade with no problems on FreeBSD 8.3.
