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.
