You may not have. Sometimes people update the ports and leave things out. If you have done a recent cvsup of ports-all, try the following. cd /usr/ports make index portsdb -u There are times when portsdb has problems and there are times when "make index" falls on its face. I had a good "make index" at 0000 UTC.
