If you have a dail-up connection, you can use the "make
fetch-recursive" command. This will do nothing but fetch the port you
desire, with all it's depenedencies.  You can then disconnect your
internet connection and start building the ports offline. If you use
portupgrade, you can specify the -F flag.
