The accepted technique is in /usr/src/UPDATING just like it is in 4.x. 
There are a few things different but the buildworld, 
build[install]kernel, installworld method is used on both branches.

I think 4.7 has been EOLed, i.e., no bug fixes or security fixes. I 
wouldn't want one on my local network.

There isn't a 5.x-stable. You probably won't see that until 5.3-stable.
