More info from my end: at first I used the old sup and it hung several
times in the middle of updating files, most usually updating
src/share/man/man4/bpf.4. I tried to update sup and then it would only
give me errors and time out. I grabbed the old sup (sup.NetBSD-mac68k)
and, at this moment, it's in the middle of receiving
src/share/man/man4/man4.sparc/le.4 and I don't think it's going to get any

Thanks for the help!
