This is great news!

Now if I could only figure a way to sup or anon-cvs the ports
directory I'd be really happy.  The only way I've been able to get it
has been via a complete ftp (via tar.gz).

The "cvsup" command carries all this modula-XXX baggage, that doesn't
seem to want to compile up easily under netbsd-current.

Has anyone tackled this yet?
