No -- the rule is this isn't necessary for updates within the same
major branch.  In the past, there have been occasional excursions from
that ideal but not AFAIR in any of the 5.x, 6.x or 7.x release series.

| 2) Any gotcha, hints or things to be aware of?

Nothing that I can recall -- this update worked very smoothly just by
cvsup'ing to the appropriate tag and going through the usual buildworld
cycle.

Always wise.

        Cheers,
