for base/opt collections we have to maintain the httpup REPO... the cvs  
wrapper does not require ftp/http space and overload to syncs is with the  
cvs tree.

most of the clc's ports works well on ppc too and they are a foundamentally  
resource for CRUX distro

sometime ago we have proposed a little hack to pkgutils to have only one  
main cvs repository and a technique to pass only the differences to the PPC  
clients... but no one has approved :(
