You have downloaded the complete CVS repository, that is, all versions
of FreeBSD and the history of their development. Since you have been
running 3.0, you now probably want to checkout the 3.1-STABLE version
and build it. Use the environment variable CVSROOT to point to the
directory where your downloaded version files are located, cd to
/usr/src and get the 3.1 stable branch with the command
CVSROOT=/my/cvs/repository cvs checkout -r RELENG_3
If your system is already using ELF, use `make world',
otherwise use `make upgrade'.
And don't forget to build a new kernel:
make depend && make all install

You don't want to remove any of the ,v files...
