You probably want to use RELENG_8_1 which is the security branch for
the 8.1 release. RELENG_8_1_RELEASE is the version on the CD, without
any security fixes.

I updated my ports this morning and have 1.0.24. You probably just
updated the World (base-system) source code. I think the sample sup
files have separate files for world and ports . I think that's the best
way to do it although some people prefer to do them together.
Most people these days use portsnap for updating the ports tree.
