I do something similar to maintain my own private tree, here at CMU.
I probably update on the order of once a week or so.
get the tar balls of the current src (if you see tarballs made
midweek, when they were made correctly the previous
weekend, that's a hint that they might be a 'stable'
untar them locally.
from the top: cvs import -m "from NetBSD-current" -I"! " \
-I. -I.. -ICVS src NetBSD NetBSD-YYMMDD
blow away the tar files and the tree extracted from them.
clean up the conflicts (for me, there can be hundreds,
depending on what i've been up to... 8-)
blow away the conflict-merge tree.
this only requires one transient copy of the source (either the
untarred copy, or the merge-in-progress copy), in addition to
what i already have elsewhere on my disks...
