Thats what I had thought. But the version numbers are much older than the 
ones in the announcement.

Once I changed the tag from tag=RELENG_5 to tag=RELENG_5_3 then and only
then did I get the correct files.

Prior to that, I tried to delete /var/db/sup and then even /usr/src
and still I was not seeing the updated files.

I have no idea why, but I am glad that I have things working now.
