i'm a little confused as to how can't have enough space to install the 
svn package but still have enough space to manually build kernel+world.

i've seen a lot of people bring this argument up on various freebsd 
threads and i'm just not getting it...

having said that - if someone where able to port csup over to svn i 
would be a very happy person, but i really don't expect that to happen.
