"crux-contrib" trouble

hai all,

i wanted to use "user contributed" packages. so i did these 3 things:

1.) $ cd /etc/ports
2. $ mv contrib.rsync.inactive contrib.rsync
3.) edited /etc/prt-get.conf and uncommented the line "prtdir
/usr/ports/contrib" (i.e. removed the hashmark in the beginning of the
line. After that, it looked like this:

### prt-get conf

# note: the order matters: the package found first is used
prtdir /usr/ports/core
prtdir /usr/ports/opt

# the folloing line enables the user maintained contrib collection
prtdir /usr/ports/contrib

then i did "ports -u" & got this ERROR :-(


updating file list from crux.nu::crux-contrib
@ERROR: Unknow module 'crux-contrib'
rsync error: error starting client-server protocal (code 5) at main.c

Updating file list from crux.nu::ports/crux-2.2/opt/

i also tried:

# ports isinst rsync

it says:

[Config error : can't access /usr/ports/contrib]
package rsync is installed

what is the trouble? why it is not updating "contrib" packages?  i
also tried making a directory named "contrib" i.e.
"/usr/ports/contrib" even after doing that i get the same error :-(
