I am always willing to learn something new. How is it more efficient at 
downloading the port's Makefiles? I agree that the first time you 
run 'portsnap' it might take twenty minutes to fetch and extract the files. 
However, after that it only requires a fetch and update to complete the job. 
It appears, to me anyway, to run at least as quick as cvsup plus I do not 
have to rebuild the index. If he runs cvsup I believe he has to rebuild the 
index, or am I mistaken?

In any case, he has to use one method or the other or he will never get his 
system updated.
