Thank you for your kind reply. Here's another question: does portsnap now 
fetch the ports from the quarterly branch? I just want my ports to be in sync 
with my packages. To use the quarterly branch, I might fetch the ports via svn 
explicitly. Same with the latest one. But what's the default  behavior for 
portsnap now? Is it the same as it used to be?
