CVSup works.  It doesn't work on PowerPC, but it does on sparc64.
And there seems to be a lot of progress on 'csup' lately (that's
the rewrite of cvsup in C).

Obviously different people will have different packages that they
need.  For *me* and my needs, the sparc64 port is fine.  What isn't
fine for me is that I'm running it on a slow ultra-10, but that
isn't freebsd's fault!       :-)
