What you want to do is a cvsup (Mathew Seaman recently pointed out csup
that is supposed to be part of the system, but I don't seem to have it
on the machine I am presently on running 6.1) so you would have to install
cvsup from ports (/usr/ports/net/cvsup or /usr/ports/net/cvsup-without-gui)
if you need it.
You seem to be suggesting just what I wish to avoid ie all the trouble of a
complete system compile and install with a full ports rebuild. Rather than the
src build I would prefer a complete dump and iso reinstall.
I looked further into the binary update script and it seems pretty
comprehensive. I still expect to go through my ports rebuild, but perhaps I
wouldn't need to copy my files back. Even so I see comments in the 6.0-6.1
"# XXX For some reason, /usr/lib/liblwres.so had its version bumped.
# XXX Leave behind the old version just in case."
so we end up with some minor cruft left lying about. If the ports need to be
rebuilt anyhow, I think I prefer to start from scratch.
I just posted a basic rundown on doing this (but with slightly different
numbers) just a couple days ago. You might want to check the questions
archive. Briefly, you install cvsup (if not already installed); run
the cvsup (or csup if you have it) using a supfile set for
(I will append my working supfile at the end. It is a simple one)
Then build and install everything.
Do this stuff in a script(1) session to preserve messages and warnings.
cvsup -g -L 2 /etc/supfile62
