If you are installing FreeBSD on a machine, then the easiest thing
to do is just check source when you are selecting those things to
install. That will install the entire source for FreeBSD in /usr/src/...
The ports is a separate thing. You probably do not want to install
the entire source for everything in the ports tree. That changes
constantly anyway. Just install the ports tree and then csup it
to update it to the latest. Then, you can get any port source you want
by going to /usr/ports/whatever and downloading it from there.
Downloading the source for a port can be very complicated because
many of the ports have lots of dependancies which cause other ports
to be pulled in. That is all handled by the make files in the
ports tree. So, if you download, build and install a port by
going to it in the ports tree and typing
It will download the necessary sources, including the dependancies,
build them and install them. The sources will be left in the
ports tree source files.
