I just did a 5.1 install from CD and shot myself in the foot because
/usr/share/examples/cvsup/stable-supfile has a default tag of RELENG_4
which I didn't see until after I had run a `make update`.  Presumably
this is an error and it should really be RELENG_5_1 (and ditto for 5.0,
which also defaulted to RELENG_4).

Lesson for the day: READ EVERYTHING.  ;-)
