I don't know about the reboot, but you should always use the head "." tag for 
ports (note that's a period without the quotes). Ports don't follow releases 
the way the system does and using anything other than the head tag will just 
delete your entire ports tree. The port itself will determine the proper 
configs for your system.

My /etc/cvsupfile-ports is as follows:

*default  host=cvsup6.freebsd.org
*default  base=/usr
*default  prefix=/usr
*default  release=cvs
*default  delete use-rel-suffix
*default  compress
ports-all tag=. <-------- Use the head tag.

Change the default host to whatever is closest to you.
