Here's an approach that works quite well:
First add to /etc/make.conf:
SUPFLAGS=-g -L 2
Then create the /etc/sup directory, and in it, create the
file /etc/sup/stabe.sup with the following content:
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_8
*default delete use-rel-suffix
The setting RELENG_8 will bring you the latest 8-STABLE.
Maybe you should replace the servers with something near
your location for better speed.
Then, as root:
# cd /usr/src
# make update
and you've got the current sources.

Of course, and kernel and world have to be in sync, so building
world is also needed. See the instructions in the Makefile's
# For individuals wanting to upgrade their sources (even if only a
# delta of a few days):
# 1. `cd /usr/src' (or to the directory containing your source tree).
# 2. `make buildworld'
# 3. `make buildkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE' (default is GENERIC).
# 4. `make installkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE' (default is GENERIC).
# [steps 3. & 4. can be combined by using the "kernel" target]
# 5. `reboot' (in single user mode: boot -s from the loader prompt).
# 6. `mergemaster -p'
# 7. `make installworld'
# 8. `make delete-old'
# 9. `mergemaster' (you may wish to use -U or -ai).
# 10. `reboot'
# 11. `make delete-old-libs' (in case no 3rd party program uses them anymore)
# See src/UPDATING `COMMON ITEMS' for more complete information.
This is /usr/src/Makefile of course.
