it sounds like you also need to cvsup the ports tree. it does not do it by default.
my normal routine is to cvsup the ports while the system is building world, though you can cvsup everything at once.
take a look at /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile

if you want to consolidate the cvsups, just add the pertinent ports info the the stable-supfile.
