Where is 4.9-STABLE?

What happened here is that the ports tree only has a HEAD
or . tag, and it was trying to get the RELENG_4 tagged
ports collection, which doesn't exist. Best if you use a
separate ports supfile.

P.S. I added "ports-all" to my supfile; the entire ports tree got deleted; but I did not get anything back! That was not cool. But I
grabbed the entire tar.gz from the FreeBSD website, and installed it manually again.

Everything seems fine again. Thanks again.
