This points to the compressed file which contains the complete ports
tree.

you mis-understood my question, I do not say I was trying to find
the single compressed file of the complete ports tree.

Here is my question again
When I use cvsup to download the ports config files (by category),
it does not display the directory path it's using on the server.
How can I find the directory path cvsup defaults to using?

The implied meaning here is what is the cvsup program using for an
directory path?
How can I find out what it is?

Cvsup downloads the equivalent of

ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/ports/ports.tar.gz

However, the CGI index (http page you refer to) shows
pretty much the exact same ports tree I have at /usr/ports...

So, what's the discrepancy?

Plus, what's wrong with the standard tools?

#whereis foobar
/usr/ports/misc/foobar

OR

#cd /usr/ports
#make search key=foo
