nope. and this is getting confusing. to start again
every architecture and release (4.X, 5.X) on ftp-master* has a separate
ports directory. EXCEPT alpha/4.9-RELEASE/ports - which is a symlink to
if the ports directory is identical for all architectures within a release
(i am assuming it is not across the releases) then all but the alpha/4.9-RELEASE
is broken as they all shouldn't have separate directories - there should be
just one directory in the i386 tree which everything else links back into.
if the ports directory is *not* identical then everything is fine except for
the alpha/4.9-RELEASE which is pointing into a different architecture's ports
