What's the undue hardship of having a tool in base that can do this? As 
far as I understand it, the issue here boils down to:
1. I have FreeBSD.
2. I want sources.
3. I do not want to/cannot run svn.
How can I get sources?

"You can't" should be an unacceptable answer in my opinion.

Anyhow, I've put in my two cents. I'm done with this topic.
