Cvsup doesn't know about the ports distfiles; they are not stored in
the repo.  I guess a full set (if you could ever get one; there are
always a number of unfetchable distfiles) would require a couple of
dozen gigabytes of space.

BTW, you can easily put a modern ATA disk in an Ultra 5:

des at ultra ~% uname -a
FreeBSD 5.2-CURRENT FreeBSD 5.2-CURRENT #7: Thu Jan 15 13:46:43 CET 2004     des at  sparc64
des at ultra ~% dmesg | grep ata
atapci0: <CMD 646 WDMA2 controller> port 0xc00020-0xc0002f,0xc00018-0xc0001b,0xc00010-0xc00017,0xc00008-0xc0000b,0xc00000-0xc00007 at device 3.0 on pci1
atapci0: [MPSAFE]
ata2: at 0xc00000 on atapci0
ata2: [MPSAFE]
ata3: at 0xc00010 on atapci0
ata3: [MPSAFE]
ad0: 9641MB <IBM-DTTA-371010> [19590/16/63] at ata2-master WDMA2
acd0: CDROM <CD-ROM CDU311-Q> at ata3-master PIO3

(OK, so a DTTA isn't exactly modern, but you get the idea.)
