Actually, looking at the cvsup file I was using, it didn't include
the multimedia port. I created it awhile ago, and commented out the
ports-all line, because I didn't want to get the Chinese or Japanese,
etc, ports. But there doesn't seem to be an easy way to get everything
but those. There is a 'refuse' file, but that is based upon the file
name, and I'm not sure I want to refuse everything with, say, 'chinese'
in its filename.
