While this advice was correct for all previous FreeBSD releases,
cvsup(8) support for 9.1-RELEASE is not going to be provided.

Instead, you will be able to use freebsd-update to track 9.1-RELEASE
(including system sources), or you can use SVN to follow the releng/9.1

You will still be able to use cvsup to track RELENG_9 aka. 9.1-STABLE
aka. stable/9.
