[ntp:questions] Two issues updating FreeBSD 8.2 with portmaster

I tried to update my FreeBSD 8.2 to the latest NTP development (in
excess of 300), but failed on two counts. Am I doing something wrong?
1 - The version obtained was the same as my installed version:
ntp-4.2.7p255, whereas the current development version is in excess of
ntp-4.2.7p300. The commands I used were:
# cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portmaster
# portmaster net/ntp-devel
Do I need to do something to tell portmaster to update its list of
current versions? I had understood this was automatic.
2 - Although this version appears to compile correctly, I got an error
Making all in tests
===>>> Creating a backup package for old version ntp-4.2.7p255
tar: man/man8/ntpsnmpd.8.gz: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.
pkg_create: make_dist: tar command failed with code 256
===>>> Package creation failed for ntp-4.2.7p255!
===>>> Ignore this error [i]
===>>> Abort [a]
whereas when I ran this in February this year I don't recall getting the
same error. I'm not at all familiar with FreeBSD to know whether this
error can be safely ignored, or whether it indicates a significant
problem. I was logged in as root at the time.
I would appreciate guidance.
