Problem using "MAKE" - FreeBSD

I'm trying to update my source tree. When I 'CD' to /usr/src and execute the command, "make update" I get this error.... make: don't know how to make update. Stop Am I missing something? Did I forget to install a port to aid in the MAKE process?? Thanks for the help in advance....

    I'm trying to update my source tree. When I 'CD' to /usr/src and execute
    the command, "make update" I get this error....

    make: don't know how to make update. Stop

    Am I missing something? Did I forget to install a port to aid in the MAKE
    process??

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Well I am not sure about the "make: don't know how to make update" message.

    I use cvsup to update src/ports/doc.
    You need to add options to /etc/make.conf to use "make update"
    Here is my cvsup related options in "/etc/make.conf"
    -
    SUP_UPDATE=yes
    SUP=/usr/local/bin/cvsup # <- default installation for cvsup
    SUPFLAGS=-g -L 2 # options for cvsup
    SUPHOST=cvsup.uk.freebsd.org # the server to use
    SUPFILE=path+filename to your src_all sup file
    PORTSSUPFILE=path+filename to ports_all sup file
    DOCSUPFILE=path+filename to doc_all sup file
    -

    Try man make.conf for more details. Good luck

    check out /etc/make.conf, or if that does not exist copy
    /usr/share/example/etc/make.conf to /etc. I would read this file (and
    do a "man 5 make.conf" too). In make.conf there is a section that
    explains using make update.

    This sounds as if you are missing the Makefile. Do you have a
    Makefile in /usr/src? If not, this is your problem.

    The Makefile should be installed by the "base" package within the
    "src" distribution. To install this, you need to be root, then:

    /stand/sysinstall

    Go to Configure->Distributions->src

    Make sure to install the "base" package. When doing anything with
    sources you will need this, as well as the distribution that contains
    the appropriate sources.
