It's not, and never has been. The documented and officially supported upgrade path is: <make sure you have good level 0 dumps> make buildworld make kernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE  <reboot in single user>  mergemaster -p  make installworld make delete-old mergemaster  <reboot> For other procedures, you're on your own. > Well, I restored a backup of my /etc/ directory and now things appear > to work again (not sure about bash, but the rest works like a > charm).
