There is no tag called RELENG_5_3 in the ports try so it will cause
everything to be deleted. RELENG_5_3 only applies to the /usr/src tree.
Just use . for a tag for ports which gets the latest ones.
RELENG_5_3_RELEASE might work to retrieve the exact set of ports that
shipped with the cds, but I'd recommend to just get the latest with all
the security patches.

I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
