You bet you can.
ssh -2 -N -f -L [localhost port]:[cvsup-server-ip]:[cvsup-server-port]
ssh -2 -N -f -L 6000:cvsup.ca.freebsd.org:5999
user at outside-machine-ip-address
Then you'd simply change your supfile to point to localhost, and
possibly use the -p [port] option on the command line to change the
port to 6000.
