His PACKAGESITE environment variable is set to a wrong location. I think that he needs to set it using something like setenv PACKAGESITE ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-4-stable/All or his favorite mirror, as all one line. and then run portupgrade -PPa. It defaults to the 4.9 release packages and they never change. I have only used PACKAGESITE once and that was to update KDE. The sites were so busy that my computer would build it almost as fast as I could download it.
