What happened here is that the ports tree only has a HEAD or . tag, and it was trying to get the RELENG_4 tagged ports collection, which doesn't exist. Best if you use a separate ports supfile.

I added "ports-all" to my supfile; the entire ports tree got deleted; but I did not get anything back! That was not cool. But I grabbed the entire tar.gz from the FreeBSD website, and installed it manually again. Everything seems fine again.
