1) cvsup wasn't found (when you tried to run it) because the shell
for root is csh/tcsh. When binaries are added/removed from
directories in $PATH, you're required to type "rehash" to pick
up the changes. This is specific to csh/tcsh.
2) It doesn't look like the host has its local network configured
in a proper manner. How cvsup determines this is beyond me;
your network must work *somehow* since your pkg_add worked.
3) Your last cvsup attempt was incorrect because you replaced a
period/dot in the hostname cvsup.FreeBSD.org with a whitespace,
which messed up the arguments passed to cvsup.
