You probably need the ``*default release=3Dcvs tag=3D.'' if you want your
/usr/src to be populated with 5.2-CURRENT sources.  Take a look at
the /usr/share/examples/cvsup/standard-supfile for a working example.
Read the cvsup(1) manpage for the meaning of different settings in
the supfile.  Throw away your /usr/src, fix your supfile, re-cvsup,
and your /usr/src will be populated with HEAD sources.  You don't
even need to write your own supfile, the standard one should work
for you:

cvsup -h /usr/share/examples/cvsup/standard-supfile

P.S.  Please send your further questions on the subject (should you
have any) to the freebsd-questions@ mailing list.
