Current Way To Update Sources & Rebuild World/Kernel?

I've been away for a while.  In the past, the proper way to update a 
system was to grab current sources via cvsup and then rebuild world and 
kernel.  But now I see cvsup is no longer supported.  The handbook talks 
about freebsd-update.  I do not want binary upgrades but is this the 
tool to replace cvsup to update sources?  How do I use it to replace the 
old way that went something like this:

cvsup sources
make buildworld
make buildkernel
make installkernel
make installworld

(I'm not sure I have that in the exact proper order but it was something 
like that).

So is freebsd-update what I need?  Is there a page that describes the 
steps to accomplish this?
