[to pick up from where I left off in my previous reply...]

I have done force-rebuilds (portupgrade -Rr -f) of ezm3 and
cvsup-without-gui after upgrading my systems to 64-bTT.  These seem
to be working okay, although it is true that I haven't looked too
closely.  cvsup on the sparc "looks like" it is finding the right
set of files to update.  However, I have not run it often and I
have not done any serious checking to see how accurately it works.

I'll add this to the list of things to do on March 10th.  That is
the date that I plan to commit the change that actually switches
sparc64 to the 64-bit time_t.

I'll try to take a quick look at this.  I'm puzzled why it would
be needed though.  Didn't this come up on amd64 and ia64 ports?
(or is cvsup not-available on those architectures?)
