that works as long as one adjusts the INDEX for $PORTSDIR other than /usr/ports. if one has installed ports tree other than in /usr/ports -- like i have in /source/ports -- then to fix the INDEX (assumming perl is available) there are two ways.
1- brute force (in case you always download the INDEX during cvsup)...
perl -pi -e 's#/usr/ports#/source/ports#go' /source/ports/INDEX
2- the "right way" would be to fix the perl program which generates the INDEX, and afterwords run "make index" in $PORTSDIR (in my case it's /source/ports)...
perl -pi -e 's#/usr/ports#/source/ports#go' /source/ports/Tools/make_index
cd /source/ports && make index
