Hmmm... I don't think you can get one of the -RELEASE branches
directly through ctm(1).  The directories available are:

    cvs-cur         -- presumably the whole FreeBSD CVS repository
    ports-cur       -- the ports tree
    src-2.2         -- 2.2-STABLE (Ancient)
    src-3           -- 3-STABLE (Ancient)
    src-4           -- 4-STABLE (Currently at 4.10-BETA)
    src-cur         -- 5-CURRENT

So the realistic choices you have are: src-4 to get the latest
4-STABLE, or cvs-cur to get the whole code repository, from which you
can check out the sources using whatever -RELEASE tag you wish.
src-cur isn't a good option unless you're a system developer, and the
other src-N collections are pretty old.
