    usr.sbin/freebsd-update freebsd-update.8 
  Add support for "freebsd-update -r newrelease upgrade" -- binary
  upgrading to new releases.  Important parts of this code include
   * automatically determining which optional components (e.g., src,
  info, proflibs) are installed.
   * merging changes in files which are modified locally and have
  changed between the currently running and new release.
   * prompting the user to rebuild all 3rd party software before
  deleting old shared libraries.
  Yes, this is compatible with "freebsd-update rollback" -- you can
  test a new -BETA and roll back to the old release if you don't
  like it.
  Subject to re@ approval, this will be MFCed before 7.0-BETA3 and
  MFC after:      2 days
