it doesn't matter. however, it might not be the best idea to edit/use
one of the sample supfiles in /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ directly,
since these files get overridden every time you install world.
just copy one of them to a 'safe' location, apply your changes and (if
you want to use 'make update' in /usr/src) adjust /etc/make.conf
