yep that worked for me from 3.0 and 3.1. If you are not planning on
tracking cvs then you might want to consider using the sets built by
releng. The procedure isn't much different.
I still prefer to use the old gunzip/tar -xp approach of installing
sets. I remember filling all those floppy discs and walking home to do
an install of 0.9, now that brings back memories.
