i tried both cvsup and csup to update my ports and i'm not sure it's working. they both run through but the ports don't seem to be updated. like i can see a new port here http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/ports/lang/php5/ which is 5.2.6 (also on freshports) but using cvsup3.FreeBSD.org i don't get above 5.2.5....

is there any other way?

Well, just to make sure, use the ports-supfile from /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile and change *only* the server to cvsup10.FreeBSD.org Just checked my tree, and I have php 5.2.6. Some cvsup servers seem to be more up to date than others.

Then again, if it is just the ports tree you are after, I would suggest using portsnap:

The first time just do:

portsnap fetch extract

And for all subsequent times:

portsnap fetch update

That's it! No settings, no supfiles, no worries on selecting servers. And it is faster too. The first time it will download a ~50MB file, but then updates will be a lot smaller.
