Call that 5.x up-to-date not 5.0. 5.0 is a release, not a branch

This will check out LFS-5.0 as the release, not the branch. The correct
command to get the current code in the branch is this:

cvs checkout -r b5_x

b5_x is the branch tag, so wherever we are is what you get. Tags
starting with a 'v' are used to indicate specific versions like v4_0
v4_1 v5_0-pre3 and v5_0
