If you use source the latest version is 3.22.22.

You need to install the ports collection, this can be done by either ftping
the current ports from, or using CVsup to download and keep
the ports Collection up to date.

By Ftp:
tar -xvf ports.tar -C /usr/ports

If using CVSup, add:

*default tag=.

to your CVSup file. Then run CVSup to update your sources & ports collection

The problem is that /usr/share/mk/ is looking for the file
/usr/ports/Mk/ and can't find it due to you do not have the ports
collection installed on your system.
