New to BSD and Unix in general, so be gentle :)

Trying to make XFree86-4.  Mounted CD-ROM using command "mount /cdrom" and then CD'd to /usr/ports/x11/XFree86-4  Once there used make command, only for FreeBSD to try (and fail) to access the net due to proxy authentication failure.  Since I don't believe FreeBSD supports NTLM authentication (or does it?) I wish to do this via the CD-ROM... how can I make it access it?

I confirmed that the CD-ROM had indeed been mounted to /cdrom as the instructions say it should.
