"portsnap fetch" should only be used interactively; for non-interactive use, 
you should use "portsnap cron"

"portsnap extract" is only needed for initialising your portsnap-maintained 
ports tree.

So, after your initial portsnap run, what you need in your cron file is 
just "portsnap fetch update"
