Assuming someone installed the 4.8-RELEASE ports tree from their
CDROM, then the ports-supfile would need to contain:
*default tag=RELENG_4_8_0_RELEASE list=cvs:.
for the first cvsup to adopt that ports tree and then change the
*default release=cvs tag=.
for the second cvsup to update to the latest ports tree.
I'll have to dig out the old 486 that has some release installed on
it and give it a try. Cvsup must do an excellent job of keeping
track of sources even though the adoption isn't done since I rarely
see the adoption mentioned in the lists.
Thanks for the clarification!
