There's a small typo in the patch:
 When checking out sources, you must include the -P flag to have
- cvs prune empty directories.
+ cvs prune empty directories. Also, if CPUTYPE is defined in your
+ /etc/make.conf, make sure to use the "?=" instead of the "=" assignment
+ operator, so that buildworld can override the CPUTYPE if it needs to.
+ In case you would like to avoid installing new packages of everything,
+ you might want to uncomment the "COMPAT4X= YES" entry, so that 4.x
+ compatibility libraries are build which should allow you to continue
+ using your existing software for a while.
