cvsup keeps a log of it's activity in the directory you specify as your
cvsup base:

*default base=/usr/local/etc/cvsup

on my system.

Looking in /usr/local/etc/cvsup:

munk at users # ls -al /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/ports-all/
total 9236
drwxr-xr-x  2 root  wheel      512 Nov 11 05:12 .
drwxr-xr-x  5 root  wheel      512 Jul 19 18:04 ..
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  9430414 Nov 11 05:12 checkouts.cvs:.

indicating cvsup ran on 5:12am this morning.
