Someone made an error when committing to ports and consequently 'make
index' goes bezerk.  I just noticed that myself.  The offending line
appears to be:

    GETOPTDIR!=     cd ${PORTSDIR}/devel/libgnugetopt; make -V WRKSRC

in the x11/xstroke port.  If you try and run any make command, you'll
get a similar effect:

    happy-idiot-talk:...ports/x11/xstroke:% make -V PORTSDIR
    cd: can't cd to /devel/libgnugetopt
    cd: can't cd to /devel/libgnugetopt
    cd: can't cd to /devel/libgnugetopt
    cd: can't cd to /devel/libgnugetopt
    cd: can't cd to /devel/libgnugetopt
    cd: can't cd to /devel/libgnugetopt
    cd: can't cd to /devel/libgnugetopt
    cd: can't cd to /devel/libgnugetopt
    cd: can't cd to /devel/libgnugetopt
    cd: can't cd to /devel/libgnugetopt
    cd: can't cd to /devel/libgnugetopt
    cd: can't cd to /devel/libgnugetopt
    cd: can't cd to /devel/libgnugetopt
    cd: can't cd to /devel/libgnugetopt
    ...

Etc. ad nauseam.

        Cheers,

        Matthew
