Remember, though, that the word "port", in this sense, just means "port
skeleton" - a set of files which tell your system how to obtain the
source code (the "distfiles") for a particular program, and how to
compile and install it.

cvsup will not put the distfiles themselves into /usr/ports.  That will
only happen when you cd into one of the directories under /usr/ports and
issue a 'make' command.
