Are you using sysinstall to install the port from a cd? It's almost certainly
better in the long run to install the ports collection on your machine (you
might already have it: look to see if you have /usr/ports and lots of
subdirectories) and install from the net. That way you can keep the ports
collection up to date with cvsup and install individual ports with
portinstall. These things take a little setting up but make life a lot
