Just as with Subversion.

To speed it up, you could seed it with the latest generated version
from rsync:

  rsync -vt rsync://* $ports

Just make sure you use the correct OS version in the rsync path. There
is also no guarantee that this really matches the git ports tree, which
might already contain newer Portfile changes.
