You need to use an up to date ports tree.  I'm assuming you're using the
ports.tar.gz from the 5.0-RELEASE iso, which didn't have support for cvsup.
Official support was just committed to the port recently, it should work
on 5.0-RELEASE.

Either mount an up to date ports tree from another machine, or download
a new ports.tar.gz from one of the ftp sites.
