You figured out the right one. I frequently mix the 2 up but only one has the -uU option :). I use make index instead of portsdb -u but portsdb now uses make index to build INDEX[-5]. So my way isn't different any more. I also forgot to add that I use a cronjob to do the cvsup but I do it twice a day.
