Binary updates in FreeBSD

Another rip from a different site. This is going to end up being a collection of notes for myself (and anyone else who may be interested) from various places on installing/configuring FreeBSD.

Run portupgrade like this:

env
PACKAGESITE=ftp://ftp.<mirror>.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-5-stable/Latest/

portupgrade -Pa

And replace <mirror> with an appropriate country code (like cz).
