FWIW I can't seem to get cvsup binary, built since this change, to work.
The package builds fine, but trying to use it produces gems like:

%cvsup ~/cvsup/bsdinstaller-repo-supfile 
Nonexistent base directory "/home/installer" for collection "installer"
%ll /home/installer/
total 6
drwxr-xr-x  3 catseye  wheel  1024 Aug  2 12:05 CVSROOT
drwxr-xr-x  7 catseye  wheel   512 Aug  3 11:50 installer
drwxr-xr-x  3 catseye  wheel   512 Mar 20 19:32 sup

I thought this might be because I didn't rebuild ezm3.  So I tried
rebuilding ezm3 and I got this:

. ..
boot-FreeBSD4/m3build/FreeBSD4/m3build -T ../m3config/src

*** runtime error:
***    gc: Could not extend the traced heap

  use option @M3stackdump to get a stack trace
mkdir FreeBSD4
--- building in FreeBSD4 ---
gmake: *** [packages] Abort trap (core dumped)
*** Error code 2

Stop in /usr/ports/lang/ezm3.

Any ideas?
