They don't appear to be in the repository that is available via rsync.
Also, pkgsrc & xsrc aren't mentioned in CVSROOT/modules, though they *ARE*
available at
(which maybe doesn't matter, but a 'cvs co CVSROOT' should be enough to
find out what is available in the repository, IMHO)

It would be cool if had the entire repository available for
rsync.  Or if 'cvs' allowed the repository itself to be copied. :-)
