Sure you can. Just edit your ports supfile to have:
*default release=cvs tag=RELEASE_4_6_0
and re-cvsup. Note that the tags used in ports are disjoint from the tags
used in the main system sources. Mix them up and you'll end up with a
/usr/ports (or a /usr/src) with not a lot in it.
There's also no guarantee that any of the distfiles referenced from a
ports tree that old will still be available.
