Interesting so I learnt 2 things here csup exists so no need to
install cvsup and I should run 'make delete-old-libs' .  Basically I
have done the following.

1 - upgraded world and kernel, mergemaster etc.
2 - reinstalled all ports portupgrade -af
3 - installed compat6x

I have not ran 'make delete-old-libs'

I thought the old libs were removed because after I booted up into the
7.0 world alot of ports didnt work as libs they linked to were missing
so had to be recompiled anyway to even run.

Do I run 'make delete-old-libs'  in /usr/src ?
