Don't want to go far off-topic from the "Package Repository" thread, so let me start a new one here concentrating on managing the ports collection on Zaurus.

Two questions to start with:

Q1. What would be the easiest AND safest way to clean up the sources fetched and the files created during make?
I see people talking about "cd /usr/ports && make distclean".
Does it work for Z? I just want to be cautious not to mess up the port tree.

Q2. What would be the best way to keep the ports collection most up to date?
I learn cvsup from http://www.openbsd101.com/updating.html#u6, however when i tried to set it up, there was an error saying cvsup is for i386 machines only.
It seems another way is to overwrite /usr/ports with the latest ports.tar.gz from pub/OpenBSD/snapshots/, but it takes so quite a long while to uncompress the tarball. The nice thing about cvsup is that it only update the ports when application while leaving the unchanged ports intact, so it's fast and more convenient. Any hope or method to get cvsup running on Zaurus?
