When you ran cvsup on ports-all and there was't anything to download, 
you had done the re-cvsup. I did a cvsup of ports-all just before I did 
the make index. I have a script that does the cvsup and generate the 
indexes. I make fewer mistakes that way.

How do you run cvsup? What do you use on the command line. For example, 
I use

cvsup -g -L 2 ports-supfile

You might also change the mirror in your cvsup file. For example, I have

*default host=cvsup11.FreeBSD.org
*default base=/usr
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=.
*default delete use-rel-suffix

Occasionally, a mirror will get stuck for one reason or another. The 
only way you can find out is if you have problems, change the mirror to 
something like cvsup16, and the problem goes away.

If you do this and still have problems, you should probably move your 
problem to [EMAIL PROTECTED] There are more things that you can do but 
they get messy :).

The mirrors mostly update on the hour. Cvsuping less than an hour apart 
may be using the same old data. You need to wait until 15-20 minutes 
after the hour for the mirror to be updated. I mirror most of the data 
and it takes around 8 minutes for a mirror update to finish.
