There is a script in the freebsd cvs repository to mirror the portsnap
servers, but from the README with it.

"this is not an invitation to start running a portsnap mirror as well. 
There
is nothing to stop you from mirroring from portsnap[12].freebsd.org,
but since mirroring consumes ~5GB/month of bandwidth while updating a
single machine consumes ~5MB/month of bandwidth, adding unnecessary
mirrors is likely to increase rather than decrease the load on the
official mirrors.  If in doubt, talk to me (cperciva@FreeBSD.org) first."



So if you think its worth it (you have 1000 or so clients to upgrade,)
go look in the cvs repository under projects.
