I strongly recommend using svn so you will have revision numbers.
Install devel/subversion
rm -rf /usr/ports/*
svn co svn:// /usr/ports

Once you do this, don't run csup again. If something outside of svn
modifies the files, you will need to fix conflicts and that can be a
Of course, you can make your own mods, but you will need to resolve
conflicts. This is not much of a problem for a small number of files.
There are several easy way to maintain you own patched ports and merge
them into the main tree.

Once you have checked out the ports tree, use 'svn up /usr/ports' to
update them to the latest revision or specify a revision to roll back
to an older revision. Use the svn web interface to look up revisions
