Is there no machine you can nfs mount a ports tree from? I do it all
the time and set the following environment variables in bash:
Then I have a shared and up-to-date ports tree for all my machines. If
I just want to install packages then I use:
portupgrade -R -PP www/firefox
You should also be able to browse the ftp site by hand or check out
freshports.org and get the package that way too, but it doesn't handle
dependencies as nicely.
Also, if your trying to install the linux version, then make sure
linux-XFree86-libs is installed as well as some version of linux_base.

I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
