cvsup for forts doesn't take much even on modem.

`make fetch` in the ports/category/name will get you the right distfile.

# fetch-recursive-list  - Show list of files that would be retrieved by
#                                 fetch-recursive.
# fetch-required-list - Show list of files that would be retrieved by
#                                 fetch-required.
