Oops.  I really mean "packages", of course, as in the pre-built
packages which are included on the CD-ROM.  If I were going to
build things via ports, I would first want to run cvsup on the
ports collection.

So it might be nicer to have cvsup-without-gui on the CD's, and not
include the package for the full-blown cvsup, just to avoid the
dependency on X.
