I put some stuff in /etc/make.conf.  Then I execute the following
command to fetch the most recent sources from the server:

    cd /usr/src
    make update

Then, follow the process outlined in /usr/src/UPDATING to rebuild the
system.  I do:

    cd /usr/src
    make buildworld buildkernel installkernel
    shutdown now
    mergemaster -p
    make installworld

You may have to adjust this sequence of commands depending on your
config and on what /usr/src/UPDATING says.

Please do read the chapter "Staying current with ..."; it explains
this better than I can.  I only included the above to show that it
doesn't take many commands.

Here are the lines I put in /etc/make.conf.  Please adjust!

SUP_UPDATE=     yes
SUPFILE=        /usr/share/examples/cvsup/standard-supfile
PORTSSUPFILE=   /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile
DOCSUPFILE=     /usr/share/examples/cvsup/doc-supfile
