Thanks to all.
I may compare the results to me, but I got the answer: no. :)

(I was using -z3 and a 56k modem...)

I know but as I wrote I wanted to download zip only first time and than
CVS to download the diffs.
I tried what is written in doc/install. It works but I had fpc nad lazarus
binary and source also. But CVS also downloded both first time.
If a newcomer (who has modem) _have_ zip, read doc/install have to do
the same I did. I wanted to find a faster way. I did not find. Yet. :)
