Using cvsup to update your source to the latest ones on a
"release branch" is the standard way to do it, and I think
it's very convenient.  On FreeBSD you do the same (and it's
the only way there, too, or at least the only officially
supported way).
There might be tarballs of the latest sources you can download if you 
don't like to use cvsup, or use rsync. It should be possible to build 
your own installation-images which can be burned to a CD and used when 
doing a new install. You could also check the mirrors to see is someone 
have already done so.

Of course, at the moment it might be worth waiting a while and get 1.8 
when it's released.
