Okay, thank you all very much for your replies.

I have some more questions now. What about updating the ports? From what 
I have gathered, what I just did only updates the base system. What is 
in the base system? Don't I have to update everything else? I have a 
number of large programs installed. I use X and Mozilla for mail and 
news. I installed both from packages. They wouldn't compile for some reason.

What can I use for mail and news that does not need X? My Email is POP3 
and I have no idea how to get any of the CLI mail/news programs working. 
I am sorry to be such a pest, but please help me!

Any help is greatly appreciated! I am desperate to get rid of X and Mozilla.
