i'm trying to upgrade, then dist-upgrade an out-of-date bsd box

portsdb -Uu is failing...

	Updating the ports index ... Generating INDEX.tmp - please  
wait.."Makefile", line 57: Could not find bsd.port.options.mk
	make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue

from what I've uncovered online:

	something wants that file in /usr/share/mk
	that file only exists in /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.options.mk ( until  
portsdb get upgraded itself ? )

has anyone experienced this in past ?  can you offer pointers ?  can i  
just copy from /usr/ports/Mk , or will i run into hell from mismatched  
versions of apps and source files conflicting with one another ?
