First of all edit /usr/share/examples/cvsup/standard-supfile so that it says *default release=cvs tag=RELENG_4_7 rather than *default release=cvs tag=RELENG_4 - this a typo in 4.7-RELEASE. Then install cvsup: "pkg_add -r cvsup-without-gui". Then pick your favourite cvsup server and update: "cvsup -Z -h cvsup5.uk.freebsd.org /usr/share/examples/cvsup/standard-supfile" (all one line) Then read and digest /usr/src/UPDATING.
