If you had a FreeBSD box at work you could do a "make fetch-recusive"
for each port you wanted to install.  With current tools I don't think
there's a good option otherwise.  You might be better off just
downloading the package set for your release from the FTP site.  The
latest 5-stable package total around 11GB.
