I'm quite new to this myself, but you don't seem to have asked for the
ports tree.  This is the supfile I use to get src & ports -

*default host=cvsup.uk.FreeBSD.org
*default base=/usr
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_4_4
*default delete use-rel-suffix
*default compress
ports-all tag=.

I'm sure you'd have checked the online handbook yourself, but if you
haven't here's the address for the cvsup section -
