cvsupit is just one way to get cvsup.

Do you have cvsup on your system? Is it a post-Sept 9, 2001 file?

If not try pkg_add -r cvsup

Then cd to /usr/share/examples/cvsup and read the stable-supfile and
do what it says--get sources for RELENG_4, cd /usr/src, read UPDATING,
make buildworld
and all subsequent commands.
