FreeBSD, forgot to install ports, DOH!

Ok let's say you did a basic FreeBSD install and you are ready to go. You, of course go to install nmap as your firstapp:
cd /usr/ports

DOH! You forgot to install ports from the cd. That's ok I got you covered.

#mkdir /usr/ports
#portsnap fetch
This downloads a snapshot of the ports
#portsnap extract
exctracts the ports to /usr/ports

Alright, it's that simple.
