Well, I'm a bit confused about this "script" - something doesn't make
sense - what are you supposed to call the script? And it doesn't work as
written:

# update-ports    #(the name I gave the script - maybe I didn't
understand something about how to write the script - the instructions
clearly said copy the script)
make: don't know how to make update. Stop
/usr/ports/INDEX-7.bz2             100% of 1283 kB  581 kBps
Now run:
/usr/local/sbin/update-ports: echo# /usr/local/sbin/portsdb -u : not found
/usr/local/sbin/update-ports: echo /usr/local/sbin/pkgdb -uvF : not found

I guess that then I have to rund them manually... something ain't right,
right?
