Upgrading to 6.2 first makes sure the configure
scripts for the ports can detect all the functions
that are available in 6.2. Some of them might not
be available in 6.1, so you wouldn't use them with
6.1 binaries on a 6.2 system, even if you could.

It might not be a big deal, but in the worst case
you just don't gain anything by upgrading FreeBSD
first. I don't see any advantage of upgrading Xorg
