Default CVS Refuse file -- stumping me

Hey everyone.
Diving back into the FreeBSD world after a brief hiatus.

Anyway, I was building a FreeBSD 7.2 server here and was trying to figure out how to get the refuse file working again, since I dont want all the ports.

Basically, I have my ports-supfile all setup.

Here is my ports-supfile:

*default base=/var/db
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=.
*default delete use-rel-suffix
I *thought* my refuse file would go intO


so it would be /var/db/sup

Yet, its not working.
Im missing something here.

Can anyone help me out?

Many thanks.

/var/db/sup/refuse works for me ...

% cat /var/db/sup/refuse
Note that cvsup/csup will *not* remove these directories, so if you already have a previous snapshot, you will have to manually delete these directories (i.e. rm -rf `cat refuse | xargs`).
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
