Are you *sure* it's hung? -U does a "make index" in /usr/ports which takes *forever* as it has to run a make command in *every single port*. If you've just updated your ports tree with cvsup then consider running "make fetchindex" from /usr/ports which just grabs the latest pre-built version and then just doing "portsdb -u", though anything that needs the .db file to be up-to-date will do this automatically.

Just seen that portsdb -F will fetch the index and the man page even recommends running portsdb -Fu (not -Uu) after a cvsup.

If -Fu still hangs for you, then you really do have a problem.
