[ resent, as I forgot to add the subject, sorry ]

I've found out that there are some hurdles in doing this upgrade, as
also pointed out by another user [0]. The problem is in make and I
think it happened during this change [1]. It can be solved by
installing the new make first, before the installkernel and
installworld process, e.g.:
 [ this assumes you've already built world from another box and
NFS-exported the /usr/src and /usr/obj directories, and mounting them
from the client ]
 # cd  /usr/src/usr.bin/make && make install
 [ 'rehash' if using csh. then create the pf user/groups, as pf became
officially imported in 5.3, refer to src/etc/master.passwd and group
files ]
 # cd /usr/src && make installkernel && make installworld
 [ mergemaster  ]
