I too am stuck in ruby-portupgrade swamp :-)

After a fresh install of FreeBSD 8.2 I built potupgrade, then did a 
portsnap and a portupgrade -a, in preparation to install Gnome2. When it 
stopped I followed the instructions in UPDATING, but when I try to 
upgrade portupgrade it fails because it cannot find the first server 
listed and the only other one, ftp.freebsd.org, does not have pkgtools- I verified by manual ftp connection.

Do I just wait for ftp.freebsd.org to sync, or does someone need to do 

Thanks for all that you do!!
