i have 1.8.1 release and to rebuild my system, using "WANT_GCC41=yes"
in "/etc/make.conf", i want to get DragonFly sources using CVSUP but i
can't get them. as advised at Wiki:

i did this:

cvsup -h DRAGONFLY-MIRROR /usr/share/examples/cvsup/DragonFly-src-supfile


i even tried this:   ""

it does not do anythind ? it simple produces some line of output
something like this:
ignoring dragonfly-cvs-src
Q1: why it is not downloading the source ?
Q2: i tried this ione too. i FTP-ed and then downloaded the tarball of
sources to  "/usr/src" which then unpacked to "/usr/src/src/" so i
moved the tarball to "/usr" and them it unpacked to "/usr/src/". then
i can make buidlworld". right ?
