Yup, that would cause the problem. I'm willing to bet you downloaded
the Makefile and distinfo and thought that would be all you needed; you
very likely did not clean up the files/ directory to reflect the current
state of the port.
Consider this a reason for updating your ports tree properly. :-)
If you want a tarball of just the net/DSS port, I can put one up
somewhere for you as a convenience.

I would recommend you use csup instead. I forget if it's available in
the base system on 6.0, but if not, it's in net/csup. You can safely
pkg_delete cvsup and ezm3/modula3 from your system and start using the
pure C-based csup program (it functions 100% identically to cvsup, but
lacks "CVS mode", but you're not using that feature anyway).
