According to "man portmaster" there are some options that
control the behaviour regarding the use of INDEX:

     --no-index-fetch
         skip fetching the INDEX file

     --index
         use INDEX-[7-9] exclusively to check if a port is up to date

     --index-first
         use the INDEX for status, but double-check with the port

     --index-only
         do not try to use /usr/ports.  For updating ports when no /usr/ports
         directory is present the -PP|--packages-only option is required.  See
         the ENVIRONMENT section below for additional requirements.

This means --index-only is to be used when using portmaster for
binary installs without an installed ports collection.
