um, to my knowledge, no. not if you've got connectivity and cvsup
installed. in fact, you don't even need to remove /usr/src, because cvsup
should take care of everything for you (ie. remove wrong files, add
necessary ones, leave correct ones).
i suspect that your standard-supfile is to blame, if anything isn't
working. it could be that you're inadvertently pulling down HEAD, which is
by definition, not guaranteed to build.
here is a copy of my file:
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_4_10
*default delete use-rel-suffix compress
# 1) change cvsup3 for the host you want to use
# 2) change RELENG_4_10 for the tag you want
# i believe that RELENG_5_2 is the correct number in your case
# this will pull down any security and other critical fixes based upon
# freebsd 5.2.x
1) you might find it easier to simple use 'src-all' and comment out or
delete the rest of the src-* entries.
2) if you're using a refuse file, do double check that it's contents
reflect what you actually want. if you're not _100%_sure_ whether or not
you have one, try 'find / -name refuse -print'
3) depending on where you placed your config files, you may not be using
the correct supfile. try feeding cvsup an absolute path, just to be
certain. 'cvsup /foo/path/to/your/standard-supfile'
hope this helps.
