I pretty much followed the instructions in that link, but 5.3-RELEASE
was a little behind the release levels it was using, and now that
I've run cvsup to 5.3-STABLE - I'm a little ahead.

It was really nice to have the instructions step-by-step like that!
I'd already done most of it, by trial and error, but it was nice
to have the validation.

Now I get this:
===>   Returning to build of popt-1.7
===>   popt-1.7 depends on shared library: intl - found
===>  Configuring for popt-1.7
popt-1.7: requires at least gettext 0.13, please upgrade your installed version.

I looked around, and gettext 0.13 is still in development for ports
for FreeBSD - so it looks like I've got myself into a dependency.

I figure that I'll just wait a few days, and try the cvsup again,
and see if I've gotten lucky.

If anyone has a better, more active suggestion, I'm all for it.  Being
passive is OK, but it's not my cup of tea...
