I've many times successfully gone to 7.0 or 8.0 current.
cat << EOF > /etc/make.conf
NO_ATM=true # do not build ATM related programs and libraries
NO_AUTHPF=true # do not build and install authpf (setuid/gid)
NO_FORTRAN=true # do not build g77 and related libraries
NO_GAMES=true # do not build games (games/ subdir)
NO_GPIB=true # do not build GPIB support
NO_I4B=true # do not build isdn4bsd package
NO_INET6=true # do not build IPv6 related programs and libraries
NO_OBJC=true # do not build Objective C support
NO_PF=true # do not build PF firewall package
NO_PROFILE=true # do not build Profiling libs
I have some other things, but they are irrelevant.
Next, I follow the standard steps in /usr/src/Makefile to upgrade.
make delete-old delete-old-libs
Next, After the final reboot, I did
# pkg_add -r bash sudo vim-lite
$ sysutils/libchk ; sudo make install clean
$ sudo libchk
Unresolvable link(s) found in: /sbin/pflogd
Unresolvable link(s) found in: /sbin/pfctl
Unresolvable link(s) found in: /sbin/atmconfig
Obviously, this is because of my /etc/make.conf. I wonder if
make delete-old-* should account for and delete related files based on
NO_* Knobs ?
This was direct installed from 6.2-release CD and _immediately_ upgraded.

Work like you don't need the money,
love like you'll never get hurt,
