Oops, I was in a hurry & should have added some more detail...

The refuse file is /usr/sup/refuse (as per cvsup documentation).
It happily refuses all kinds of other things, e.g. various
bits of doc/, src/release/doc/, and ports/ - most of the non-English
docs & ports.  Of these, only ports/hungarian and ports/polish
don't "obey" the refuse file.  Wierd.
