Just a thought, but do you actually need an up-to-date ports collection. If you are trying things out, and frequently reinstalling you may be better-off with the one on the disk.

One of the big pitfalls in FreeBSD (and Gentoo Linux) is that new users install something like gnome, from the disk packages, and then sync-up their ports and bring in a new version. They are then left with a major rebuild
(which may require a special recipe or script), or face
build problems with new ports.


this is one of the reasons i tend to install from FTP (and boot disks), and not from the CD.
