no ports are not base system.

you may just do reinstall.

if you fell a bit more advanced you may try the following:

1) replace kernel with generic from 7.0
2) reboot. it should work as there is backward compatibility.
3) unpack FreeBSD userland binaries from CD - by just entering every 
directory (like base, doc, etc...) and running
4) then upgrade manually /etc . maybe it could be done more automatic but 
i never did it that way - maybe someone else will help you.

5) install compat5x from ports unless you like to reinstall all ports.
