I don't think you want "tag=." as the default. That would put you the
most current sources for the OS, which may have plenty of transient
issues you don't want to have to deal with.
I use the following supfile regularly. You can see that I set the
default tag to RELENG_5_3 which is basically the original release of 5.3
plus security updates
I do that because these are servers that I try to keep as stable as
possible. For a personal system, you may prefer to use RELENG_5 to get
something more up to date, without being the bleeding edge of CVS
updates. You can also see that I specify a different tag to grab for
ports, so that I can get the updates on them.
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_5_3
*default delete use-rel-suffix
