If you are not connected to internet all the time you can use # make fetch or # 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' Regards Rambius P.S.
