RELENG_4 is the development branch for FreeBSD-STABLE. RELENG_4_7 and
RELENG_4_8 are the security fix branches for those releases.  If you want
to track the most current code, use RELENG_4.  If you just want to ensure
your system is updated with the latest security patches for your release
use RELENG_4_7, or RELENG_4_8 if you want to upgrade.
