cvsup is not installed:
pcbsd# cvsup -g -L 2 /root/standard-supfile
cvsup: Command not found.
pcbsd# whereis cvsup
pcbsd# whereis csup
csup: /usr/bin/csup /usr/share/man/man1/csup.1.gz
pcbsd# csup -g -L 2 /root/standard-supfile
Parsing supfile "/root/standard-supfile"
csup is saying the supfile is empty. All i've done is find the fastest
server. Didn't backup de supfile before finding the fastest server so I
don't know if it's removed any lines. This is the supfile:

# This file contains all of the "CVSup collections" that make up the
# FreeBSD 6.x-STABLE source tree.
# CVSup (CVS Update Protocol) allows you to download the latest CVS
# tree (or any branch of development therefrom) to your system easily
# and efficiently (far more so than with sup, which CVSup is aimed
# at replacing). If you're running CVSup interactively, and are
# currently using an X display server, you should run CVSup as follows
# to keep your CVS tree up-to-date:
# cvsup standard-supfile
# If not running X, or invoking cvsup from a non-interactive script, then
# run it as follows:
# cvsup -g -L 2 standard-supfile
# You may wish to change some of the settings in this file to better
# suit your system:
# This specifies the server host which will supply the
# file updates. You must change it to one of the CVSup
# mirror sites listed in the FreeBSD Handbook at
# You can override this setting on the command line
# with cvsup's "-h host" option.
# This specifies the root where CVSup will store information
# about the collections you have transferred to your system.
# A setting of "/var/db" will generate this information in
# /var/db/sup. You can override the "base" setting on the
# command line with cvsup's "-b base" option. This directory
# must exist in order to run CVSup.
# This specifies where to place the requested files. A
# setting of "/usr" will place all of the files requested
# in "/usr/src" (e.g., "/usr/src/bin", "/usr/src/lib").
# The prefix directory must exist in order to run CVSup.
# Defaults that apply to all the collections
# IMPORTANT: Change the next line to use one of the CVSup mirror sites
# listed at http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/mirrors.html.

# If you seem to be limited by CPU rather than network or disk bandwidth,
# commenting out the following line. (Normally, today's CPUs are fast
# that you want to run compression.)
## Main Source Tree.
# The easiest way to get the main source tree is to use the "src-all"
# mega-collection. It includes all of the individual "src-*" collections.
# These are the individual collections that make up "src-all". If you
# use these, be sure to comment out "src-all" above.
# These are the individual collections that make up FreeBSD's crypto
# collection. They are no longer export-restricted and are a part of
