If you just edit your supfile and change the tag to say RELENG_5_1 and
then re-run the cvsup(1) job, it should get you the 5.1-RELEASE
sources you require.  If you're completely paranoid about things, you
could remove the whole of the contents of /usr/src and re-cvsup from
scratch, but that will suck up a whole load of bandwidth, put a good
deal of load on the cvsup servers and probably take rather longer than
is really convenient, so don't do that without good reason.
