Depends on if your talking about for the base system or ports or both. The easiest way to do it is use the csup procedures listed in the one of appendixs of the Handbook. If you want to do it in in such a way that if you make a mortification the next csup will not globber it read the man page for developement(8), you should note though that some of the procedures listed there are overkill. For example I skip most of the stuff on /usr/src2 (besides it breaks some tools). For example this is how I update my sources on a daily baseis:

cvsup -h cvsup9.us.freebsd.org /usr/share/example/cvsup/cvsup-supfile // fetch the latest6 cvs repository
cd /usr/src
cvs -q update -dP // update my local base systems sources
// do the make procedure listed in the handbook
cd /usr/ports
cvs -q update -dP // update my ports tree portsupgrade -a // install any new port updates

Note this method will give you a 8-CURRENT system if you want some other version you will have to put a tag option on the /usr/src cvs call.
