I'm using the same approach, although the script is different and (on
the "master" machine) it also parse the cvsup output for distinfo and
does a make fech and make checksum in the ports, plus saves the failed
fetch ports to retry to re-fetch them.

One thing you might want to add is -l flag to cvsup so if the cvsup
process fails (e.g. rejected by server: Access limit .. ) you don't end
up with 2 cvsup running in the same time.

I usually find it better to build index on all machines, since they have
different ports installed and *_DEPENDS may differ largely; this make
portversion happy.
