Files under /usr/ports that do not belong to the Ports Collection will
be deleted when you run cvsup, so /usr/ports/net/sup is not a good

Quoting cvsup(1) manpage:

  As many as three refuse files are examined for each supfile line.  There
  can be a global refuse file named base/collDir/refuse which applies to
  all collections and releases.  There can be a per-collection refuse file
  named base/collDir/collection/refuse which applies to a specific collec-
  tion.  Finally, there can be a per-release and tag refuse file which
  applies only to a given release/tag combination within a collection.  The
  name of the latter is formed by suffixing the name of the per-collection
  refuse file in the same manner as described above for the list file.
  None of the refuse files are required to exist.

  cvsup has a built-in default value of /usr/local/etc/cvsup for base and
  sup for collDir but it is possible to override both of these. The value
  of base can be changed using the -b option or a base=pathname entry in
  the supfile.  (If both are used the -b option will override the supfile
  entry.)  The value of collDir can only be changed with the -c option;
  there is no supfile command to change it.

  As an example, suppose that the base and collDir both have their default
  values, and that the collection and release are `src-all' and `cvs',
  respectively.  Assume further that checkout mode is being used with
  `tag=RELENG_3'.  The three possible refuse files would then be named:


  If the supfile includes the command base=/foo the refuse files would be:


  If -b /bar is used (even with base=/foo in the supfile):


  and with -c stool as well:


Personally, I use /usr/local/etc/cvsup as the base dir and /usr as the
prefix dir, i.e.

*default base=/usr/local/etc/cvsup
*default prefix=/usr

The refuse file I use for the entire Ports Collection is located at
