make update is the correct command.

Don't define PORTSSUPFILE in /etc/make.conf if you're using portsnap(1).
 Apart from anything else, typing 'make update' in /usr/src will attempt
to cvsup not just the system sources but as well any of PORTS, DOC where
you've defined a ...SUPFILE.

In fact, without PORTSUPFILE defined in /etc/make.conf typing 'make
update' in /usr/ports will invoke portsnap for you, so long as you
obtained the ports tree by 'portsnap fetch extract' originally.
