I use the following as my supfile:

  # CVSup supfile for 2.2.x stable
  *default tag=RELENG_2_2
  *default prefix=/usr
  *default release=cvs delete use-rel-suffix compress

The source and documentation updates fine.  But this wiped out all my
ports; more specifically, it removed all Makefiles and patches under
/usr/ports, but left the directory structure intact, as well as the
pkg/* files.

The file /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/ports-all/checkouts.cvs:RELENG_2_2
was updated (and is just short of 1MB in size).

What'd I do wrong?
