Just a quick update from Thursday:

 I found that notes:

 "Please note that the "anoncvs" collection has been removed.  If you
  want to mirror the NetBSD CVS repository you should use the rsync
  service on instead."

I guess that's where I went wrong:

 - FreeBSD uses cvsup as the primary distribution method of mirroring
   the AnoncCVS repository, including a collection to help 
 - NetBSD uses rsync or sup as the primary medium (although some notes
   and documentation suggest a FreeBSD-like cvsup infrastructure) (*)

 regarding the source of his cvsupd(8) server configuration files.
