Not sure what the question is, but I gather you're looking for the
remove recursive?

Be careful with this one:
rm -rf <whatever>

Just don't use '*' for <whatever>.  If you inadvertently use that from
the wrong place, you'll loose a lot more than you bargained for.

Before you do that though, just go to the ports directory and type:
make fetchindex
which will go get an updated INDEX file.

I also seem to remember there is a problem rebuilding the index when
you have ports subdirectories in the refuse file.  I had a similar
problem in 5.2.1, but I don't remember ever rebuilding the index in
