See below for comments on cvsup-mirror.

Okay.  I patched that on my system, and recompiled ezm3.
All I did was make the simple patch file.

It is at:

and you would want to put it at:

I then recompiled cvsup-without-gui.  That seemed to work fine, but
then again cvsup seemed to be working fine for me before this...

I did a 'make package' for ezm3 and cvsup-without-gui, and I put
them in   ezm3-64btt-1.1_1.tbz
     and   cvsup-without-gui-64btt-16.1h.tbz
in the ~gad/public_distfiles on my freebsd.org account.  I still
have no idea if that is what I'm supposed to do, or how people
can pick up the packages from there, but at least I can say that
I made some packages!

I tried making a package for cvsup-mirror, but that port is marked
as "may not be packaged: too interactive."  My guess is that all
you need to do is install the ezm3 package, and then compile
cvsup-mirror like normal.

I have no idea what ports-makefile-fu would be needed, but we
haven't picked the value of __FreeBSD_version for this change yet,
so I have the excuse that we couldn't really do this yet anyway.
