I have been using sup for a while to checkout and update my pkgsrc
on my machine.  I applied the updates for imap-uw yesterday and of 
course it did not work.  I noticed the update was committed overnight.
Now here I am almost 12 hours after the update and sup still has not
downloaded the updates.  I even went so far as to force sup do download
pkgsrc again.  I just tried downloading the latest pkgsrc with cvs and
I now have the update.  The pkgsrc documentation mentions using sup, 
cvs, and the tarball for updating the pkgsrc.  I figured that at the 
very least sup and cvs would be equally accurate, is that assumption
