Configuring the Ports tree in OpenBSD


I'm new to OpenBSD, although I have play a bit with FreeBSD, and I was wandering if the process to configure the ports tree is in the same way as is done in FreeBSD, and where to the a snapshot of the Ports tree of OpenBSD, cuz I was not asked in the install process (or at least I don't remember) to install the Ports tree as in FreeBSD.

Any help will be appreciated.

If you install OpenBSD from the retail CDs, then it's on the sparc/sparc64 CD (usually), i.e. the one that has "source code" stamped on the label. If you did an FTP install, then you need to use CVS to check it out.
