is it necessary to rebuild all ports?
So far, I haven't rebuilt any ports and haven't had any problems...
Yes, it is always necessary when you update to a new major branch (such
as 6.x -> 7.x).
The old applications will continue to run immediately after the upgrade
and as long as you do not make further changes, but once you start doing
new port upgrades and installs you will easily create ports that are
linked to two versions of FreeBSD system libraries, e.g. libc.so.6 and
libc.so.7. This doesn't work very well ;-)
