Compare what you have locally with what's logged recently at 

Take today's 
for example. If you run portsnap then:

grep 21.2.0 /usr/ports/games/fs2open/Makefile

– a truly up-to-date ports tree will have the string (21.2.0) in the file.


Rewind to 7th April, 
there was an announcement of work in progress and for some time after 
that, I found that things were not truly up-to-date following use of 
portsnap. 17th April 
things seemed to be better, I have not checked since then (I now use Git 
instead of portsnap).
