From your text, it was Checkout ports/databases/p5-Class-DBI-Plugin-RetrieveAll/pkg-descr where things died and it didn't recover until you got to java3d. I just did a cvsup of ports-all from my mirror and didn't see your problem. I think that I would try a different cvsup mirror and make sure you don't have -s on the cvsup command line. Nothing has changed in AbiWord2 for 3 weeks. You may have something messed up in your /usr/sup/ports-all/checkouts.cvs:. which is causing the recuring download of AbiWord2. I don't know if there is an easy fix to that. I know I have deleted the checkouts.cvs:. file before but that was a long time ago.
