It seems to fetch the distfile fine here.  But you should probably
look at using "csup" instead.  It is functionally equivalent to
cvsup-without-gui but rewritten in C.  It should be in the base system
on FreeBSD 6.2 (or newer) under /usr/bin.

You may also want to look at Portsnap (which should be in the base
system at /usr/sbin/portsnap).  I prefer it to csup.
