Ok, first off I didn't follow the instructions above verbatim.  What I 
did do is copy ports-supfile, edited it, and perform a cvsup using it.
All it seemed to do, however, is delete everything in the ports 
directory.

Here's how I edited my ports-supfile

*default host=cvsup10.us.FreeBSD.org
*default base=/usr/local/etc/cvsup
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_4
*default delete use-rel-suffix
ports-all


Did I do something horribly wrong?
