FreeBSD pacakges?

	On my Thinkpad with 5.4 I'm able to use portupgrade -PP[&c]
	to upgrade my ports via packages, but on my 5.3 platform I get

--->  Fetching abiword-plugins-2.4.1
File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
** The command returned a non-zero exit status: 1

	Do we have to be this restrictive?  I can see keeping the
	versions 4.x, 5.x, 6.x, 7.x, nd  so forth separate, but no
	reason to *not* let the majority of ports for, say, AbiWord,
	from being able t be installed by package instead of having 
	to pull over the source tarball ... 

	Hopefully somebody can shed some insights.
