When I said this fixed it, I meant the all three entries
# portmaster -L | egrep '(ew|ort) version|total install'
# portmaster -L --index | egrep '(ew|ort) version|total install'
# portmaster -L --index-only | egrep '(ew|ort) version|total install'
showed the same output:
        ===>>> New version available: java-zoneinfo-2012.j
        ===>>> New version available: liberation-fonts-ttf-2.00.1,1
        ===>>> New version available: libxul-10.0.11
        ===>>> New version available: firefox-17.0,1
        ===>>> New version available: libreoffice-3.5.7
        ===>>> New version available: vigra-1.9.0
 ===>>> 545 total installed ports
        ===>>> 6 have new versions available
#

This is the same /usr/ports repo arrived at via two methods that are valid.
Do you follow me ?
