 From src/Makefile.inc1:

# update
# Update the source tree, by running cvsup and/or running cvs to update
# to the latest copy.

 From ports/Makefile rev. 1.61 commit log:

Allow both SUP_UPDATE and CVS_UPDATE to be used, similar to src/Makefile

The same commit introduced the check ".if defined(SUP_UPDATE) && 
!defined(PORTSSUPFILE)" with a different meaning from what you say.

All the docs I found says explicitly (and does accordingly) that 
SUP_UPDATE and CVS_UPDATE are *not* mutually exclusive and that 
SUP_UPDATE can be defined *without* PORTSUPFILE.
