For i386, I've always been able to find a binary package for cvsup in 
the directory "packages/net" under the particular release.  For sparc64, 
there is no such binary package under either the 5.0 or 5.1 release 

It's not a big deal, except that this contradicts the information in 
section A.5 (Using CVSup) of the handbook.

But now I've got the binary from John's site.  Thanks for the info.
