If you are not connected to internet all the time you can use

# make fetch


# make fetch-recursive

for the port you want to install. fetch will download the distfiles
for the port and fetch-recursive will download the distfiles for the
port and its dependencies. Then you can disconnect and proceed with
'make install'
