I'm not sure what you mean.  I am running 4-stable, and ports
are building just fine.  What's broken?

I don't read every freebsd- list, but I haven't seen any mention of
this, or witnessed any evidence of a problem.  If you are having
trouble with the ports collection, you could try removing and 
cvsupping a fresh tree.

What version were/are you using?  Why would you change the
OS version because of a ports problem?  I'm not clear, here.

Again, I can only speak from my own experience, and on my
machines, running 4.7 - 4-stable, ports build just fine.  The
problem may lie elsewhere.
