I should probably bulid an AMD64 6-CURRENT snapshot.  Let me wait until
the libreadline 5.0 import clean up is finished and see if I can't build
a 6-CURRENT snapshot this weekend.  For 5.3 there are plenty of ISO's
available as part of the offical release cycle.

Until then, one wanting to install FreeBSD on an AMD64 right now should
go to and use the latest
RC(beta).  Then install /usr/ports/net/cvsup port and get the latest
sources and 'make world' upgrade to 6-CURRENT.
