Well, since 6.0 came out much after 5.4, it uses updated ports/
packages (new features, bugfixes), so the versions of some ports
of 6.0 will be higher than of 5.4. What is the point in installing a
new release of FreeBSD and using 'old' ports.
Just install FreeBSD 6.0 and use the packages provided with the RELEASE,
or cvsup your ports tree and do a fresh install of the ports you need.
