Default Got my ports tree deleted after attempting ports update

Hello,
The following happened on my FreeBSD 9.1 virtual machine which had the full ports tree in place under /usr/ports:
Code:
[root@virtbsd91 ~]# portsnap fetch && portsnap update && portmaster -ad

Fetching snapshot tag from ec2-eu-west-1.portsnap.freebsd.org... done.
Ports tree hasn't changed since last snapshot.
No updates needed.
/usr/ports was not created by portsnap.
You must run 'portsnap extract' before running 'portsnap update'.
[root@virtbsd91 ~]# ls /usr/    
bin/     games/   home/    include/ lib/     lib32/   libdata/ libexec/ local/   obj/     sbin/    share/   src/     
[root@virtbsd91 ~]# ls /usr/ports/
ls: /usr/ports/: No such file or directory
These are machine details:
[root@virtbsd91 ~]# uname -a
Code:
FreeBSD virtbsd91 9.1-RELEASE-p11 FreeBSD 9.1-RELEASE-p11 #0: Tue Apr  8 20:54:56 UTC 2014     root@amd64-builder.daemonology.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64
Of course I did NOT delete ports tree myself:
Code:
[root@virtbsd91 ~]# history |grep rm |grep port |grep -v grep
[root@virtbsd91 ~]#
So, what happened with the ports tree?! How is it posible to be deleted during normal upgrade operation?! Needless to say, I never experienced such situation before.
Anyone experienced similar situation?

If yes, please reply. I'm trying to understand what went wrong there.

Regards.
