Not random. Those ports got moved/renamed/removed to something else. For
example, fileutils got renamed to coreutils. Look up those ports in
freshports.org to see what happened to them:

For fileutils:
  http://www.freshports.org/sysutils/fileutils

Just put the relative path of the port and prepend
http://www.freshports.org/ to it. Ie.,
  http://www.freshports.org/graphics/gimp1
