Yes. Install cvsup. However, the ports cvsup / pkg_add -r will not work,
you need David's copy of it. Alternatively, you may port the Modula 3
compiler and use it to build the cvsup port itself. Search the archives of
this list for the url - subject "cvsup" ought to do it, pretty much.
Remember to unset compress in your supfile.
