Thanks Kent, but it didn't work. Setting it made it search in
ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/All. I eventually found
that it's PKG_SITES that needs setting (and you don't include 'All')
after trawling through pkgtools.conf. Unfortunately it's not documented
in the portupgrade manpage.
Anyway, I've got it all working now - thanks for the push in the right
direction, and thanks Phil too for the input.
