When I first tried to instal CVSup, I really had a hard time in doing it...after a 
long time of research using Google and Netscape Search...I stumbled on a Thread that 
mentioned about how fetch's honors the HTTP and FTP mentioned in one's 
environemnt...Since FreeBSD has set me up to use Bourne Shell ($, I hope I am 
right)...I then put

http_proxy=; export http_proxy
ftp_proxy=; export ftp_proxy

in my .shrc file located my directory and I was able to download and install the cvsup 
Port...I thought that finally I can use cvsup and install all the Ports that I turns out that...Yes, I was successfull in installing Sylpheed, but no I 
could not download and install the ports vilearn, kinput2-canna, but again I was 
successfull in installing Canna, and Eterm.

Now, I do not know why I can download some Ports and can not on others...
