Hi all,
I=92ve noticed that using the -P option with portupgrade, which should =20=

try to fetch the binary version of a package rarely works. Most of =20
the times it tries to fetch the package from the freebsd site, it =20
fails and then proceed to build it from the sources.
While I can expect from to time that a pre-compiled version of a =20
package to be unavailable, it surprises me to see this so many times.

Thank you
Giorgio Valoti
