There's your problem. Remove those lines. As they don't start with *default,
they're assumed to be collections. As you've specified the same things on
the three lines below, you can just delete them.

3.4-RELEASE isn't a branch, it's a tag. There's not much point cvsupping
it, as it will never change. (Well, it *could*, but I don't know why,
and it's very unlikely I think.) Do you not really want 3.4-STABLE? That
would be ``*default tag=RELENG_3''.
