Try to move these files out of the way (all INDEX files and pkgdb.db)

/usr/ports/INDEX-*
/var/db/pkg/pkgdb.db

and run (it will take a while)

portsdb -Uu

as another option you can remove the files above and reinstall ruby
and ruby-bdb on those servers.

Are you running on version 7 or 8 ?  are you mounting the NFS rw ?
