It was decided that my ports had to be rebuilt from scratch.  The likely
cause of the problem is failing to adobt my ports when I first
cvsupped. (details:
After deleting the ports tree & installing ports.tgz from my ver 4.4 
installation CDROM I cvsup'd using 'tag=RELEASE_4_4_0', then cvsup'd
again with 'tag=.'  However portsdb -uU still failed:

  make_index: fandango-0.2.5: no entry for /usr/ports/x11/kdelibs3
  Warning: Duplicate INDEX entry: *** Error code 1
  Warning: Duplicate INDEX entry:

& make description also failed:

  ===> chinese/abiword failed:
  zh-abiword-0.7.13: "/usr/ports/editors/AbiWord" non-existent --
  dependency list incomplete
  ===> chinese/acroread-chsfont
  *** Error code 1

I got around this by removing all the ports/* entries from my refuse
file so that I receive the full ports collection.
