Not getting updated portfile

I'm trying to get an updated version of the portfile for boehmgc to fix a problem with mountain lion. I can look at the web interface and see the updated port file but if I do a 

sudo port clean boehmgc
sudo port selfupdate

I don't get the new version. I can look at the portfile on disk  via 

cd $(port dir boehmgc) 

and it's still the old version according to the id string and revision (actually lack of the revision in the original, revision 1 currently). The change was committed yesterday (22 hrs ago at this point) so it should certainly have propagated to the rsync directories. 

I've attached the output of a sudo port -d selfupdate
