What I do is lay down an /etc/supfile[1] containing what's needed to
bring the system fully up-to-date regarding base and ports. I like to
track the -security branch  (RELENG_6_3) but many just track stable
(RELENG_6).
Run csup -g -L2 /etc/supfile

Thereafter {build|install} {kernel|world} and follow with pkg_add -r
portaudit, portmaster and any other ports I find useful[2].

# or RELENG_6 to track 6-STABLE
