ports/Makefile uses a very old syntax for sort(1) in building an INDEX file.
Fix: I'm not 100% sure of the field counts in the patch, because the old
syntax isn't very precisely documented. I did some quick tests to
check it, though, so I think it's probably correct.
Try to build INDEX with textproc/bsdsort.
Trying to force Gnu sort into POSIX mode might do it also.

Portmgr guys, any comments on that? Should it be closed?

Use sort with "modern" option
When building index we were using obsolete (but still supported options)
let use the non obsolete one.
