Simple: just install the net/cvsup-mirror port.  It will run you
through an interactive installation script to help you configure
things.  Since you're setting up a private mirror, you shouldn't use
cvsup-master.freebsd.org. (In fact, you shouldn't use that server
anyhow without permission from the powers that be.) The other cvsup
servers are generally fine for this purpose.  If you're going to run
the mirroring frequently, do check with the admins of the server
you want to use first.

        Cheers,
