Yes, that is what we have been recommending for some time now.

There was a README posted to ports@ about how to do this.  OTOH if you
have already upgraded your ports past the RELEASE_4_EOL point, then your
best choice is to just go ahead and upgrade to 6.2.  Otherwise, you are
going to have to revert your ports tree and then deal with the fallout
of having any ports you have upgraded since the RELEASE_4_EOL tag was
laid down, and that would be a complete waste of time.
