The INDEX-n.db is a locally generated portupgrade thing.

Edit your /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf for each machine to
include a line such as:
ENV['PORTS_INDEX'] ||=3D ENV['PORTSDIR'] + '/INDEX.local'

Only instead of '/INDEX.local' use '/INDEX.your_hostname_here'.

You might also look at changing the part ENV['PORTSDIR'] to
something local (speed, etc), like adding a line up from that:
ENV['LOCALINDICES'] ||=3D '/var/db'

then

ENV['PORTS_INDEX'] ||=3D ENV['LOCALINDICES'] + '/INDEX.thy_hostname_here'


Also, if you have local space, settin' WRKDIRPREFIX=3D in
/etc/make.conf will speed things up & allow multiple machines
to build at the same time.
