It worked!  As several people pointed out I had to delete those first three
lines of my config file.

I didn't know that the 3.4 release tag would never change so thanks, from
now on I'll track stable.

In my posts to this forum I try to show that I'm working to solve the
problem on my end.  I always check the archives, the index to the Complete
FreeBSD, and several web pages (FreeBSD Rocks, etc.) before I write.  When I
do write I try and address one specific problem.  The error message I was
getting made me think that it was having trouble with one particular line of
my cvsupfile so that's the line I sent into the list.  After all, the rest
of the file was from the example, it couldn't be wrong, right?

Sorry my first post didn't have enough detail to analyze the problem.
Thanks to all those who committed enough time and patience to walk me
through this.

And all it took was explaining what we needed from him in order to
solve his problem. If the first person to reply to his post had done
so, rather than giving the cryptic response "Your cvsup file is wrong",
we could have saved about five posts, and he would have been a happy
camper much sooner.

C'mon guys, let's stop playing head games. That's not the purpose of
this forum.

Ben, this is not directed at you.
