I don't think you can.  Try "man portsnap": does not work on my system because I built without portsnap or svnlite, figuring to use the real subversion instead, from NetBSD if not from FreeBSD.

But you could build devel/subversion from the current ports tree and then checkout the desired ports tree branch.

I use only the current ports tree, and in NetBSD, the current (as opposed to quarterly) pkgsrc.

I figure if something doesn't work quite right and I want the next version, I don't want to have to wait for the next quarter-year.
