There's nothing to stop you from creating /usr/ports/local right now 
and just using it.  You don't need a .cvsignore if you are using 
cvsup/csup, they ignore files that aren't in the cvs repo anyways.  
Of course if you are using portsnap that might be a different story, 
not sure how it handles updates...
