You can rsync the whole CVS tree and then do a local "cvs update" of
your pkgsrc tree, and when you run CVS on the same machine as the
repository it's usualy a whole lot faster.  This is what I do.

I don't know exactly how long the various stages take -- I do it all in
a background job.  I can e-mail you the script I hacked together to do
it all if you'd like....
