Hmmm... interesting, I re-tried cvsup for ports-all, again installing a port
failed, rm -rf the ports tree and started over using 'cvsup.uk.freebsd.org'
instead of 'cvsup4.uk.freebsd.org'.

Installing a port now works fine ..are there any 'cvsup4.uk.freebsd.org'
sysadmins on the list...?

Thanks for assorted comments!

Cheers
