Looking at that post it seems something failed when you tried to update
your ports collection.

I'd suggest you delete it (keep distfiles though so you won't have to
fetch again), unpack again the ports.tgz, then install cvsup and update
the ports collection using that.

If you installed programs from packages when you installed the system,
you may get problems with version conflicts installing from an updated
ports collection - this happens usually when the last release is getting
old. In that case, maybe you should clean out the system, deinstall all
packages, update ports and start again. This takes time .... but given
that 6.2 is coming up.

Cheers, Erik
