  Hmmm, thanks for info, this kstuff is really much much better than
  strace :). Never heard of that, but now I am pretty impressed. Thanks.

  Portsnap is working pretty well in normal shell. I was using cvsup
  before portsnap, but now, as portsnap is being part of base system I
  am considering to switch to it on all our production servers. I am
  also going to give a try to make update in /usr/ports.

  Thank you!
