I usually cvsup the ports every time I install a port. That way I
know I'm getting the latest available ports. There's not much point
in running cvsup when you are not going to be using the result.
Similarly, I update the source only when I'm going to be updating the
system. Otherwise, I want to keep the source I actually used to build
the system, in case I need to rebuild something.
