I had thought that at first, but felt is was the

I want to install (not upgrade) a new version
on my 5.1 box. Couldn't find pointers for
installing (not upgrading) from an existing
Also, is 5.4 the most recent release ?

FYI, 5.1 is very old and long out of support. You should update to a
modern release of FreeBSD if you want your port builds (and FreeBSD
