I've been using the ports collection happily for a couple of years now,
and portsdb -Uu has correctly made me an index once.  I believe it's
redundant, though, to immediately follow a cvsup with a portsdb -Uu, as
the cvsup takes care of the index for you.  I wouldn't worry too much;
I've seen other folks recommend recvsupping and trying again; It should
be ok to ignore it; at least I always have.
