Hi Howard,

I know this doesn't answer the question about the svn problems you've
been encountering, but have you considered using portsnap to keep your
/usr/ports tree up to date?  One of it's advantages is that you'll
save space by not housing the /usr/ports/.svn directory created by
"svn checkout".

Once portsnap has populated the tree the first time, it's super-fast
keeping it up to date, and it's easily invoked from a nightly cron job.

Hope that helps,
