I think it'll be the same. Upgrade was the only option for me
as I had a fully functionally X setup in my laptop - it went pretty smoothly
(for the amount of changes done to the system).

Make sure you follow the instructions in /usr/ports/UPDATING to the letter.

well, if u dont upgrade your tree, you may be able to install xorg 6.9 from
packages (MUCH faster) ; get it working; then sync the ports after this and
upgrade. There is nothing particularly wrong with 6.9, specially if you have a
clean machine and you plan to do the whole upgrade path.

just dont go overkill with setting up KDE / Gnome and other things that depend
on X. twm would do for now ;)
