Ok, I'm not sure about i386.  Depending on a variety of things it
can wind up being a bit of a challenge assembling the package sets
for these early BETAS.

That said, if anyone tests out the Alpha package set and finds
problems I'd like to hear about it.  I'll probably do another
build of those after portmgr@ tags the tree for the release but
I'll do it exactly the same way as the packages that Wilko put onto
the BETA5 iso's.  If there is something wrong with them I need
to find out about it. :-)

Sorry but do you mean 'port' (as in building from /usr/ports) or
package (using pkg_add)?  If you mean package the disc1 package
set includes cvsup but not cvsup-without-gui.  There should have
been a cvsup-without-gui available in /usr/ports to build from.
