Hi I have been trying to use cvsup to update my 5.1 install, but something is not 
working right on this end. I have read the section in the handbook several times but 
still can't get it to work.

This is the supfile that I am using with cvsup:

*default host=cvsup9.FreeBSD.org
*default base=/usr
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_5
*default delete use-rel-suffix
*default compress

# eof

But when I go to /usr/src and do the make buildkernel KERNELCONF=LOWFAT as root of 
course it tells me that make doesn't know how to make buildkernel. and when I ls the 
directory all that's there is sys. Shouldn't there be some sort of Makefile in there? 
I figure that's why make doesn't know what to do. Can someone tell me what I'm doing 
wrong here?

I do have a kernel that I built with the source I downloaded after installing 5.1 
using the LOWFAT configuration file, and it works fine. However to do this I had to 
use the first procedure listed in the handbook, because of course when I cd to 
/usr/src and make buildkernel it doesn't know what to do.
