xorg-upgrade is the file that script(1) spews all the output into so, if 
the upgrade fails, you've got all the info to work out why (which is why 
UPDATING suggests using script(1)). IIRC when I did the 6.9 -> 7.x 
upgrade xorg-upgrade ended up being something like 30MB!!

  From script(1):

   script [-akq] [-t time] [file [command ...]]


   If the argument file is given, script saves all dialogue in file.
