Hi Dick,

just in case you want to give this a try, here's my experience with
portupgrade -arR.

I have got about 400 packets installed on my FreeBSD 5.0p7 (standard
gnome2 / XFree86 desktop pc with applictions like evolution, galeon,
openoffice and acroread), running on a Duron 1300 with 512 MB Ram, 5 GB
of free hd space and a DSL internet connection (about 90 kb/s

Took my system about 39 hours to complete the procedure.
