In my experience, upgrading linux base hasn't broken anything as long as
proper steps are taken.  Boris was correct in referencing
/usr/ports/UPDATING for instructions on upgrading it.  There are important
steps there.  Also the original post had an error that reflected the sysctl
not being set correctly.  Generally, sysctl.conf is only run at boot.  If
you're just getting starting in BSD, it is probably easier to just remember
to reboot after changing files like /etc/sysctl.conf and /boot/loader.conf.
It's more complicated than that and this introduces some unnecessary steps
but it's a lot easier to remember for someone new to this enviroment.
