look in uh, /usr/share/examples/cvsup, and there's a file called
ports-supfile.  copy that file somewhere in your [root] home
directory.  next,
`pkg_add -r cvsup-without-gui` (or build it, net/cvsup-without-gui)
then, go into that ports-supfile you copied to your home directory and
look for a like CHANGE_THIS.freebsd.org, and pick a cvsup server (I
use cvsup8.us.freebsd.org).

Once, you got all of that done, run
`cvsup -L 2 /root/ports-supfile` (assuming that's where you put it).

What this will do is update your ports collection to what's "current".
 The problem with win32-codecs is it seems like whenever they make a
new version of them, they delete the old version of their server.
Hence, you have to stay current. :)  I build everything I use from
scratch, I cvsup and portupgrade -a once a week or so.

I have a feeling somebody on the list is going to object to my method,
but it seems to work for me.  Hope this helps!
