This is what I would do...

as root,

cd /usr/ports/

rm -rf *  (make sure you are in /usr/ports/ when you do this)

Safer would probably be

 rm -rf /usr/ports/
 mkdir /usr/ports

portsnap fetch  (this will take a while)

portsnap extract

After that, you only need to do 'portsnap update' when you want to update the ports and it should not take too long if you have updated them recently.

Ah.  I somehow over looked the "update" portsnap command.  Thank you.
