The cvs tags is a little different from what you have stated:
RELENG_4   is STABLE for the 4.X branch, including NEW development
RELENG_4_8 is "STABLE" for the 4.8 branch, only security fixes added 
RELENG_4_8_0_RELEASE will give you the sources of the original 4.8

Thus, I would suggest tracking RELENG_4_8 for your purposes.

For more info, read FreeBSD Handbook, Appendix A.7

Hope it Helps

I want to replace my linux debian woody server at home for a FreeBSD-4.8
server. It'll be on the net 24/7
What's best: FreeBSD-4.8.RELEASE (RELENG_4_8) or should I track (cvsup)
The latter gives me security patches, but will it really be
