Hi Daniela - what version of FreeBSD are you using at the moment?  And
what are you upgraging to - that is, what is the CVS tag for the
stable-supfile, should be something like RELENG_4 or RELENG_4_7

I normally do mergemaster at the end, although I understand the big mail 
system changes after 4.5-RELEASE mean you do mergemaster -p _before_ 
buildworld as far as I know.

When I was new(er) to FreeBSD I found the changes after 4.5 so confusing
that I never bother to upgrade pre-4.6 machines to -STABLE, just left them
upgraded to RELENG_4_5 for security updates.
