kern/120733: libbsm.so.1 missing after upgrading to 6.3-RELEASE

Thanks for your quick response. I did read the Handbook, and googled
carefully before I used freebsd-update.sh to migrate from 6.1 to 6.3.
(Relevant documentation suggested only minor to minor revision migration
was supported, except 6.3 to 7.0 would work.) So I migrated to 6.3
intending to then migrate to 7.0, but I experienced this kern/120733
bug, leaving the 6.3 installation in a disabled state.
I did email the person responsible, but it is vacation season after all.
Are you (or is anyone) aware of any way to upgrade to 7.0 from the
6.3-RELEASE installation in this disabled state, i.e. without having to
do a fresh 7.0 install and a manual port all my application
configurations? (Given what happened when I followed the best
documentation around, I'm reluctant to experiment.)

1) Is there anyway to use freebsd-update.sh to jump ahead to 7.0 while
6.3 is in this broken state?
