Hello Michael,

AFAIU, the problem is that 6.3-PRERELEASE does not have binary
packages built for it. It is intended for testing purposes. Just wait
for 6.3-RELEASE plus allow some time to build everything.

PS. There is Russian/Ukrainian speaking UA-FUG with some of FreeBSD
committers and big ISP professionals in members. See
