It's good advice to make sure that you are using a base system and
ports tree that are up-to-date, or at least contemporaneous and from a
stable snapshot.  But it seems to me to be overkill to ask someone who
is having trouble installing ports to mirror the FreeBSD repository.
Snapshots downloaded per the instructions in the FreeBSD Handbook
ought to be enough for most people.
