Invalid information in make.conf for FreeBSD 5.2 RELEASE

I copied the example make.conf to my /etc directory and modified it to 
my system settings. However, in make.conf, under the CVSUP section, it 
specifies to edit supfile settings and then run make update in /usr/src. 
However,  when i cd to /usr/src and run make update it reports "make: 
don't know how to make update. Stop". Just thought that it would be 
important to either fix this or remove it as it might lead to a source 
of confusion for newbies trying to update sources.
