Well then, update your ports tree to the latest point (I recommend
portsnap for this), then deinstall the borken portmanager and install
the updated, fixed version.  The whole sequence will look something like

 # portsnap fetch extract
 # cd /usr/ports/sysutils/portmanager
 # make deinstall reinstall
 # portmanager -u -l

and you should be set.  Well, at least you should have the latest
version of portmanager...

Note that if you have used portsnap before, you will need to run
portsnap fetch update instead of fetch extract.
