It is the ports collection. The advantage is simply this - when you
/stand/sysinstall and want to add more ports etc, it reads off of the last 2
CD's and installes them - opposed to the cd /usr/ports/(somedir) make install
which downloads them off the net.
well worth the investment if bandwith is an issue
