The source tarball needs to be in /usr/ports/distfiles in order to
compile. 'make install' first checks if the tarball is there. If it is,
it goes ahead and compiles and installs. If it isn't, it goes online and
downloads it for you.

So, if you don't have internet access on that machine, you need to find
some other way to get the appropriate tarballs in /usr/ports/distfiles
