Well Kristian, it looks to me like your procedure sucks, since it's 
failing on two computers. That should tell you something is wrong with

Running a script is not saving you any time if it fails. Do it without 
running a script. There is a difference between running a script and

Are you actually using this line? Or, are you trying to disguise it so

*default base=/usr
change this to:
*default base=/var/db

*default prefix=/usr

*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_6
change this to:
default release=cvs tag=RELENG_6_0

*default delete use-rel-suffix

#ports-all tag=.
#doc-all tag=.
Just upgrade src. Don't be mucking around with ports and doc at this 
time. Leave them be.

Blow away your sources and re-cvsup src. Follow somebodies procedure 
that is known to work.
