If you want to make sure that nothing damaged is in your way, delete

everything under /usr/src except of your configuration file.

You also could use this to upgrade to 7.1.

I have considered that. There are a few ports installed on this system however, MySQL and Apache being the most important. How does one go about upgrading to a newer release and ensuring that the ports of "pristine" also when the upgrade is completed.

I was thinking of this approach, please advise if I'm mistaken.

1) comment all installed ports from auto-loading in rc.conf
2) upgrade kernel to newest release (7.1)
3) upgrade user land applications
4) csup the ports tree
5) portupgrade -a
6) uncomment the commented lines from rc.conf
7) reboot and hope all works as planned

Does this sound appropriate?
