If you don't have a fast connection you might want to consider
installing the ports from packages (which *are* on the release ISO
images, at least for popular ports) rather than compiling all your
ports from source.
Anyway, do you think you could download an ISO of the sources all
that much faster than just downloading the sources directly from
their respective repositories around the world as is normally done?
OK, maybe a little bit faster, but not that much.
If you simply must have sources not packages, you might consider
using something like portupgrade -F to prefetch the sources you want
separately from doing compilation, and just batch it to do that
fetching overnight or something.
