cvsup5.us.freebsd.org does seem to have stopped updating. I've
cc'd the "hubs" mailing list in case this was not known.

I tried cvsup3.us.freebsd.org (the example you showed in your
supfile), and it seemed fine; not just fast, but fully in synch
with my usual cvsup host (although it was busy enough that I had
to try for a while before I got in). So whatever is going on does
seem to be local to you.
Try increasing the verbosity of cvsup; it may be able to tell you
what its problem is.
