ctm base files will get you the source as of the last release.  Then you
have to apply the delta files to get to -current.  With cvs, you get
-current in one shot.  ctm might be a good way to track -current. But if
you are only wanting -current for a one time shot, cvs...

It makes no difference, really.  Either way, your going to get the same
thing: A source tree.  Which brings a question to mind:  When you say
cvs tree, do you mean a cvs repository or a set of sources from the cvs
repository?  A local cvs repository is an entirely different matter.  So
what do you want?  A repository or sources?

At work:

% cd /usr
% cvs get ksrc-sparc ksrc-common

This would yeild a sparc specific local source tree, not a cvs

% cd /usr
% cvs get src

Would yeild a complete source tree.

Tar it up, and take it home.
