Everyone here knows that I'm no expert on anything, but I bet you're not using RELENG_4_8 in your cvsupfile. Here's mine: *default host=cvsup11.FreeBSD.org *default base=/usr *default prefix=/usr *default release=cvs *default tag=RELENG_4_8 *default delete use-rel-suffix src-all *default tag=. ports-all doc-all > Now about patches... > You don't seem to download patches the way you do for Solaris > or AIX.

If you'll subscribe to freebsd-announce (I think), you'll get announcments of patches along with instructions on how to install them. I could be wrong on the proper mailing list.
