NanoBSD is simply a FreeBSD image built using the nanobsd.sh shell
script located in (/usr/src/tools/tools/nanobsd/ ).

So the most likely want to have a sync'ed copy of the FreeBSD src tree
from CVS (See: <http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/cvsup.html>,
using 'csup' or 'cvsup' and I suggest release 'RELENG_6_2' as your
source tree).

AFAIK, yes.
