Download freebsd sourcecode for building in machine not have internet connection

I know that we can use cvsup to download all Freebsd source code
then make buildworld.
But is there a way to download it manually?
I means, I have friends that have PCs but not have interenet connecttions,
so they may come to internet cafe, download source code to portable USB drive
then make build world on their PC.
Thanks you.
