CVSUP and the refuse file

Hello everyone.

I have a simple question regarding cvsup and using the refuse file. 
Basically, just as the handbook states, I dont want to download certain 
parts of the ports tree. I followed the directions in the handbook, but I 
seem to be downloading the specified ports still.

Here is my ports-supfile:

*default host=
*default base=/usr
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=.
*default delete use-rel-suffix

I then put the refuse file in /usr/sup with the ports I don't want 
downloaded. Yet, they continue to be downloaded.

Also, when I was reading the ports-supfile and the standard-supfile, it 
appears that you can also specify certain parts that you do not want to 
download as well. However, I have not been able to figure that part out yet.

Can anyone tell me what im missing and how to fix this?

I appreciate it.
