I've updated FreeBSD in some VM from 7.0-REL to CURRENT (without any
problem); but I'm unsure now how to bring the ports tree /usr/ports to

normally in 7.0-REL I've used 'portsnap fetch update', but this will
perhaps not bring the ports tree to CURRENT; I've read a lot the
handbook about, but it is not clear for me; should I use CVS as well to
bring the /usr/ports to CURRENT, or something else?

Thx for a pointer
