I have the same doubt/question.  If I update the system via the ports,
do I have BETA3/RC1?  or do I have to run
# freebsd-update

to get the current release?

Also, like is suggested, if I update by any means, I will probably
have to delete && reinstall everything in the ports.  Is there a way
not to do this?
