If you have a partial for 3.1 in there, things work very poorly. Now, a portupgrade -uf kde3games should have done the samething as the "make fetch". Going to freebsd.org, however, was very similar to bitching about not finding a new BMW at your local Mercedes dealership.
What you don't seem to understand is that there is something wrong with either the cvsup site that feeds the ports directories or something else. I understand and am perfectly aware of where the files should go and how & where to find them. But, I am trying to use both portupgrade and cvsup. Now, if I empty the ports directories and run cvsup, then those directories will be populated with the files as you show above. However, on several tries at it, other directories were repopulated, but not the kdegames3. I am merely trying to understand what is going on... is it the cvsup? Granted, I have not yet tried a different cvsup site... I guess that's the next step. :))
I have seen this problem before and have just had to wait until the repository has been straightened out.
