5.3 contains enough "new-style" FreeBSD features that upgrade should go
without problems. The instructions at the above link are a bit
over-cautious but look correct. If you ever did any FreeBSD upgrades
successfully (following documented procedures), you probably already do
everything that's necessary, there's nothing very specific to do about 5.3.
