Keep your supfile simple like the examples and don't include features 
such as cvsroot-all that you don't understand the side effects. If you 
want a local mirror, install cvsup-mirror but you need to understand 
the consequences of what you are doing before you try that. 

The current cvsup-mirror is over 2GB and you are going to download all 
of it. /usr/src for RELENG_4 is around 300MB and that is much easier to 
deal with than a 2GB system that you still need to run cvsup or cvs 
against to use. Since you are already asking for src-all, you just 
quadrupled the amount of data you are going to transfer each time you 
run cvsup.

I use a cvsup script for each of those processes (src-all, ports-all, 
and doc-all) because I don't believe they need to be updated at the 
same frequency. I have a local mirror and feed 6 other computers from 
it. I think the break even point is 2 and you don't see any gain until 
you have more than 3. If you install a mirror on a single computer, you 
are downloading everything for all of the branch tags.

You need to read about the branch tags on
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/cvs-tags.html

RELENG_4 is stable, which is now going by the name 4.10-STABLE. There is 
now a RELENG_4_10_0_RELEASE, which never changes, and RELENG_4_10, 
which is only updated with critical fixes and security advisories.
