My usual workflow with the ports tree (and to a lesser extent, /usr/ src)
goes something like this:

   1. download ports/src tree from cdrom/ftp site (usually done once)

   2. use csup to update to HEAD

   3. build

The problem is step 2. It takes a very long time for csup to apply the
latest changes from the cvsup servers to the tree, even if my previous
csup session was only the previous day.


Have you tried using portsnap? It's a binary snapshot of the ports tree:
