Hmm... I might have done that while configuring and testing cvsup, but I 
believe that my sup-file is correct now:

*default base=/usr/local/etc/cvsup
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_4
*default delete use-rel-suffix
*default compress
ports-all tag=.
doc-all tag=.

So shouldn't cvsup correct and remove any leftovers from CURRENT? Or should I 
delete some directories in /usr/src (and which ones)?
