Okay -- it was just a question of terminology. It was a hard thing to
google for. I was afraid I would have to do the equivalent of upgrade the
kernel to get the "latest RELENG-4".
Which is better: to "make fetchindex" or to "portsdb -U"? I mean, it
seems that the former is faster, but the latter can be performed without
network connectivity, but it takes forever. I'm writing a cron script -
which should I use?
