Looks like the tz problem is fixed. Now I have a new problem. After updating 
cvs and building today's -current it now fails here:

if [ -d /usr/src/release/../../ports/distfiles/ ]; then  cp 
-rp /usr/src/release/../../ports/distfiles /bak/release/usr/ports/distfiles;  
else  mkdir -p /bak/release/usr/ports/distfiles;  fi
cd: can't cd to /bak/release/usr/ports/lang/perl5.8
*** Error code 2

It did a full checkout of the ports cvs, but didn't populate anything.

Hopefully someone will shed some light on the problems. Has anyone been 
successful at building a release lately?
