I can see how the PR is confusing in this regard.  The problem is with
ezm3 (the Modula3 software), which cvsup relies on, and not really with
cvsup itself.

The patches in the PR (from jkoshky@) are for the ports/lang/ezm3
software.  Those patches were added to the lang/ezm3 port about 3
weeks ago:;r2=1.19;f=h

Are you at all able to update your ports tree using csup, even if just
temporarily?  If so, the patches should get pulled down, and all you
have to do is:

* pkg_delete cvsup-without-gui and ezm3 from your system (use pkg_info
  to find out what their exact names are, then pkg_delete them)


# cd /usr/ports/lang/ezm3
# make clean
# cd /usr/ports/net/cvsup-without-gui
# make clean && make && make install

If you cannot update your ports tree, you'll have to download these
two files:;content-type=text%2Fplain;content-type=text%2Fplain

Take the first URL and save it as /usr/ports/lang/ezm3/Makefile

Take the second URL and save it as /usr/ports/lang/ezm3/files/extra-patch-fcntl

Then follow the same steps I listed above (starting with the

Hope this helps.
