I've done it. But the results are, at least, curious...

# csup -h cvsup.de.FreeBSD.org -L 2 -g 
Parsing supfile "/usr/share/examples/cvsup/stable-supfile"

Anythings exists now in /usr/src.

I've tried again using another mirror and cvsup(1) instead of csup(1). 
Same results: nothing in /usr/src.

It's desconcerting....

Yes, of course. I've checked it from cvsweb.

I've supposed it; your words confirm it.
