getting an old server up to scratch...

I've been trying to build a new server and I've gotten to stage where I can
start moving some of the data over from the old server. In the process I've
decided to move my version control software from cvs to svn and have been
using svn nicely now for some time. My old machine is a FreeBSD 4.4 machine
and the ports trees simply doesn't work anymore. I only get:

stimpy# cd /usr/ports/devel/cvs2svn
stimpy# make install
"/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk", line 4942: Malformed conditional
(defined(USE_RCORDER) || defined(USE_RC_SUBR) && ${USE_RC_SUBR:U} != "YES")
"/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk", line 4952: Malformed conditional
(defined(USE_RC_SUBR) && ${USE_RC_SUBR:U} != "YES")
"/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk", line 4963: if-less endif
"/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk", line 4963: Need an operator
"/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk", line 5272: if-less endif
"/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk", line 5272: Need an operator
make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue

for practically every port these days. I've tried installing from source and
I need to upgrade python (which doesn't work using portupgrade either). I
see it isn't possible to use cvs2svn on the new machine were I get to pass
in the cvs path as :pserver:/blah,blah,blah... and I can't make a dump file
on the old machine...

now what?

For svn users, is there a way to dump the cvs repos without using cvs2svn?

and for FreeBSD users,

Is it possible to get the port working or should I just move on and lick my
