keeping ports up to date on two personal machines

Hello guys,

I just have a quick question. I have two FreeBSD-5.4-p2 machines,
and instead of using cvsup on both machines to keep my ports up to
date could I just rsync /usr/ports/ from the faster machine to the
other one without any issues? I understand I could run a private
cvsup server, but for two machines this seems a little excessive.
Any suggestions or problems with this idea?

Thanks for the advice,

Anthony Philipp
