Then why not quit banging you head on a wall and use "make index". Your 
failure to adapt is spamming the list. Portsdb -U has not produced 
totally clean INDEX runs since I can remember. Make index, on the other 
hand, is currently producing clean makes.

There are times when one doesn't work and the other does. You just have 
to not refuse anything but ports/INDEX.
