Which version and other updating questions

I recently did a cvsup and it fetched all sorts of things so I'm a bit
concerned about what version make buildworld would create. How come the
Makefile under src/ doesn't have a version of the build about to be created
(The only version information is for the Makefile itself 1.323 but that's
not very helpful)? If it's there could somebody put it someplace that makes
it easy to find.
And UPDATING has NOTE TO PEOPLE WHO THINK THAT FreeBSD 7.x IS SLOW:.... But
that's not helpful because it just tells me that I could inadvertently fetch
7.x stuff (which I probably just did since I have tag=.).
uname -a reported 6.0-CURRENT (Gack current, doh *feint*).
Here's what my cvsupme5 file looks like ---
*default release=cvs tag=.
*default delete use-rel-suffix
Let me guess, since I'm using tag=. (Otherwise known as HEAD) it's going to
get what ever is bleeding edge?
Should I change that to tag=RELENG_6 (In hopes that cvsup doesn't grab
bleeding edge stuff)?
Assistance is greatly appreciated. And just when I had this all figured out
