Upgrade FreeBSD source with subversion

The following steps are needed to upgrade FreeBSD sources using subversion.
  1. Install subversion from the ports.
  2. Run it once to create the propre environment:
    sudo svn checkout /usr/src
    This will fail but create /root/.subversion
  3. Edit the file /root/.subversion/servers, in the section [global] add the following lines:
    http-proxy-host =
    http-proxy-port = 3128
  4. You can now update FreeBSD source, above steps will not be necessary anymore. The command is:
    sudo svn checkout /usr/src
