My latest attempt at
git -C /usr/ports pull
returned a fatal "index file smaller than expected"
message.

This was after a fsck episode,and a reboot
that required turning the clock back.

Do I need to reinitialize the git or will this go away
with time?

Try to fetch a new index.

% git pull -ff
% make fetchindex

The pull may not be necessary. This should update
/usr/ports/INDEX-13 (12 or 14).

You misunderstand the problem. It is git(1) that complains that
its index file (.git/index I guess) is corrupt. This has nothing
to do with the ports tree INDEX-* file.

Yep that's possible. However, one can get the same error
with "make fetchindex".

I wound up relocating my existing /usr/ports to a backup disk
and fetching a new clone.
I do not have a /usr/ports/INDEX* apparently.
