What I have learned with FreeBSD is when building a new
server based on RELEASE, to build it, then do a cvsup
on the ports directory, then build all ports. From that
point on don't add more ports until your ready to do
a make world and update everything. (and many times I
just build a new server on new hardware when I hit that point)
If you try to use the ports directories from the RELEASE iso's
without doing a cvsup on the ports directories you will run into much grief.
