I'm new to NetBSD and fairly new to CVS also, but I've had no problems with:

cd /usr
cvs -z3 updat -Pd src  [this updates everything in the /usr/src directory and

and to update the /usr/pkgsrc directory:
cd /usr
cvs -z3 update -Pd pkgsrc

No, but I haven't finished today's build yet ;-)  There are frequent
problems with compiling the -current distribution -- it's a normal
fact of "-current" life in any operating system I've ever followed.
Chances are someone will fix the problem in a day or two and all
will compile normally again after another cvs update (or two).
