hi im a FreeBSD newbie, i just want to ask some few

how do i configure, not to download unwanted ports
collections ( chinese, japanese languages) upon
updating stable-supfile?

in the handbook, says by default i should create a
refuse file, putting it in /usr/local/etc/cvsup/refuse

so i create a cvsup directory, then when i run cvsup

Nobunaga# cvsup -g -L 2 cvs-supfile
Parsing supfile "cvs-supfile"
Nonexistent base directory
"/usr/local/etc/cvsup/refuse" for collection "src-all"

here is my cvs-supfile config:

# Defaults that apply to all the collections
# IMPORTANT: Change the next line to use one of the
CVSup mirror sites
# listed at
*default base=/usr/local/etc/cvsup/refuse
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs delete use-rel-suffix compress

and i noticed by default the chinese,japanese and
other languages from cvsup-supfile is COMMENTED. does
this mean i dont have to use or create refuse

hoping for a clarification reply.
