You need to specify RELENG_5_1 in your cvsup file when you cvsup.

Note that:
a) I'm not sure it's possible to cvsup from 4 to 5.  I seem to remember
    the developers talking about the build tools on 4 not able to build
    a version 5 system.  See the archives for the freebsd-current@ mailing
b) 5 is not ready for production use yet.  Read the early adopters guide
    before you upgrade to 5.
