Line 64498 of /usr/sup/ports-all/checkouts.cvs:. # cd /usr/sup/ports-all/ # sed -i~ -e '64498d' checkouts.cvs:. Then re-run cvsup, and it will replace the missing line with the correct data. Failing that, you can delete or move aside the whole /usr/sup/ports-all/checkouts.cvs:. file. The checkouts files are used solely for bookkeeping, and as the manual says, cvsup can cope without, although it makes the cvsup process rather less efficient. See the section 'THE LIST FILE' in cvsup(1) The list file is not strictly necessary. If it is deleted, or becomes inconsistent with the actual client files, cvsup falls back upon a less efficient method of identifying the client's files and performing its updates. Depending on CVSup's mode of operation, the fallback method employs time stamps, checksums, or analysis of RCS files.
