The ports collection cannot be tracked that way with portsnap,
as far as I know, as it is in "ongoing flow"; with portsnap,
you always get the latest snapshot of that tree.

For a more "precise" selection you'd have to checkout the tree
using subversion (svn). In this case, you can specify the point
in time, for example, the tree corresponding to 10.3-RELEASE,
or a quarterly snapshot, or the snapshot that existed at the
time of a specific -STABLE version.

OS versions and ports revisions aren't exactly "hard tied" to
each other.
