If I'm not wrong, portversion/pkg_version relies on ports index (man 8 portupgrade) which needs to be up to date in order for portversion to be accurate. This is not done on a daily basis for the ports tree (as it takes some time). What you should try to do is check that your pkgdb is ok and fix any problems: #pkgdb -F then update the ports index (which takes a while) #portsdb -Uu Then run your portversion/pkg_version which should give more accurate results. Hope this helps. -- "Optimized, readable, on time; Pick any two." FreeBSD 5.1-CURRENT i386 2:42PM up 7 days, 16:15, 4 users, load averages: 1.05, 0.60, 0.63
