Hello all,

I have a few FreeBSD machines running with KDE installed.
When I copy /var/cache/pkg to another machine, it downloads all packages 
again anyway.
I tried rsync, tar, made sure the symlinks with checksums are preserved, 
but to no avail.

What is the recommended way to sync /var/cache/pkg between machines?

Thank you in advance,
