  I am using portsnap to update my ports tree like following:

  1. Calling portsnap cron from root's cron
  2. Updating ports tree using portsnap -I update from root's cron

  But it does not update anything by portsnap cron. In
  /usr/local/etc/portsnap.conf I have:


  Files in WORKDIR are dated to Aug 25. So I assume calling portsnap
  cron results in failure (both with -f /usr/local/etc/portsnap.conf or
  without it).

  Can anyone advise me on this one please?
