You may wish to look into using CVSup. It allows you to update a local
collection of files such as a CVS repository from a remote master and
still maintain local changes.

You will probably also want to use the patches that FreeBSD has
for cvs to provide a CVS_LOCAL_BRANCH_NUM you can fetch a copy of
the FreeBSD cvs sources using

  cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/home/ncvs login
  CVS password: anoncvs
  cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/home/ncvs co contrib_cvs

or just browse through the web via

to take a look at it the differences between cvshome and FreeBSD versions
of cvs (the latest FreeBSD sources have the patches applied to cvs 1.11).

A FAQ for CVSup may be found at

the FAQ will point you to sources (not in C) and binaries built
for various operating systems.

This may not be what you really want, but it might be worth looking.

        Good luck,
