I'm all for s/Port/pkg/, but the point of using make(1) is that we
don't rebuild things when we don't need to, but perhaps the INDEX
target always rebuilds because its dependency list would be at least
*/*/Makefile ;)

I don't know what to do about it, but I would prefer that 'make
INDEX' always produced an up-to-date INDEX file, and I don't know
why a user running 'make INDEX' would expect anything else.
