Your supfile line that has " *default tag=. " is going to download source code for current when you uncomment the " #src-all " line. If you're intending to follow current, that's fine. But, if you're going for 4.10 or 5.2.1, then you need a different default tag line. Until you go through the makeworld sequence, it won't bite you, on second thought, it probably will. Below is the supfile that I use: *default tag=RELENG_5_2 *default host=cvsup15.FreeBSD.org *default prefix=/usr *default base=/usr *default release=cvs *default delete use-rel-suffix #src-all ports-all tag=. #doc-all I would suggest using sysutils/fastest_cvsup. You can either do a pkg_add -r, or build it from the ports. If you just installed FreeBSD, I would do a src-all to get all the latest patches, and after that to get new patches Other than that, you're just using bandwidth. There are more changes going on in the ports, so you would be upgrading there the most. Be sure to read usr/src/UPGRADING and usr/ports/UPGRADING.
