Hi,
CVS is now deprecated. Please use SVN instead if you prefer to follow the
manual upgrade process [1]
FreeBSD-update tool upgrades (binary upgrades) your base system and GENERIC
kernel only. It syncs sources too.
So you need to rebuild your custom kernel after the process. [2]

Kind regards.
Alexandre
