You have an old ports tree. You should not have an old ports tree. Update your ports tree.

The correct way is with the 'portsnap' command:

# portsnap fetch fetches the current compressed 'snapshot" of the ports tree, or updates your snapshot if you already have an older one
# portsnap extract extracts the compressed ports tree, replacing the existing ports tree. Use this if you are using portsnap for the first time, if you have cvsupped your tree since you last used portsnap, or you feel there is some problem with your tree and would like to start afresh.
# portsnap update merges any changes to the snapshots to your ports tree. use this after portsnap fetch to keep your ports tree updated.

When you have done this, the ports tree will install the current, stable, and all-around-goodfull postgres-8.3
