Hi everyone,

after a few days of researches I have not yet found an answer to the

Is it possible to obtain distfiles, store them in the distfiles directory
and install them from this local directory without accessing the internet?

I have only a slow connection to the internet at home (the selfupdate took
several hours), but I can get hold of the source files from the PC of a
friend of mine.

Thanks for any tips,

kind regards,
