That's probably because you've selected "src" distset to be unpacked
during the installation.  Don't do that, instead, check it out with
svnline(1) if you plan to track it and/or build world from it:

svnline co svn://<branch-you-want-to-track> /usr/src

Alternatively, you might want to chase binary updates; in this case,
refer to freebsd-update(8).
