I would suggested just using the documented procedure from the FreeBSD

I haven't done any 5.3 -> 6.2 upgrades but I have done many other 5.x
-> 6.x and I haven't had a problem in any of the cases.

Of course I mostly have console on systems which makes everything a
lot simpler / safer, but you didn't say if that was requirement for
you (being able to upgrade without console).
