No, it should be pretty painless.  Just make sure to read
/usr/src/UPDATING and see if anything important changed from 4.6 to
4.8.

RELENG_4_8_0_RELEASE tags what was burned onto the 4.8 CDs being sold
and offered for FTP download, and will never change.

RELENG_4_8 is a brach tag, and will include all security patches
applicable to 4.8, so you probably want to use that.
