You should really use anoncvs for this. Find an anoncvs server near you (see the Handbook),
and do this (bourne-style shell assumed):
$ export CVSROOT=<the-cvsroot-it-says-to-use-in-the-handbook>
$ cvs login
Logging in to $CVSROOT
CVS password: <press enter>
[ With luck, it should accept you. If it says "server max connection limit exceeded" or
  something equally depressing, try again later. ]
$ cvs checkout -D <date-and-time> <port-name>
$ cvs logout
$ unset CVSROOT
