Sorry, I broke cvsupd.  :-(

The thought that I might break cvsupd did occur to me, and I did check
an ftp.freebsd.org machine after uploading the 6.4-RC2 DVDs.  But the
one I wound up checking was the Danish half, and it turns out they
apparently have switched to rsync.  So I wound up not really checking
what I had wanted to check.

One of the DVD ISO files is a tiny bit bigger than 2Gb.  And what I was
worried might be the case is the case - the i386 version of cvsupd (at
least, not sure about the amd64 version) uses 32-bits for file size.

I compressed the amd64 DVD which got it down under the 2Gb mark.  Sorry
about that.
