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
