You can just type: "shutdown now" to go into single user mode. It
avoids the reboot sequence.

I prefer to use the following after "make installworld"

        mergemaster -i -v -U

Read the man pages for mergemaster for further details.

After rebooting, you might want to cd to the /usr/src directory and
run:    "make delete-old-libs" to clear out any garbage. It is not
actually required however.
