My experience with portupgrade problems like this is that your INDEX-? and INDEX-?.db aren't being created properly after cvsuping. Portversion doesn't depend on them but portupgrade does. The INDEX-? that you download is always out of date. I use p5-FreeBSD-Portindex to keep them incrementally up todate, which is much faster then building the INDEX from scratch. After awhile, you have a mess and things don't build because the dependencies haven't been built.
