Here is what I would do:

1) svn update /usr/src
     This will update your working copy of the repository ... lots faster
than a whole new checkout
2) make -j4 -DNO_CLEAN buildworld
     Using -DNO_CLEAN will keep everything from the last 'make buildworld'
and rebuild only what is required given the source tree updates, which will
be lots faster than a full 'make buildworld'.
3) Continue with 'make buildkernel' etc. etc. as in the Handbook
