I think you need another line to tell it what branch to track.
Here is my file that tracks 6.1.   Take off the '_1' part off of
the   RELENG_6_1   to make it just    RELENG_6 
and you can track the latest of, whatever it is at the moment.

*default base=/var/db
*default prefix=/usr
*default tag=RELENG_6_1
*default release=cvs 
*default delete use-rel-suffix

*default compress

ports-all tag=.
doc-all tag=.
