important lesson though! :P "ALways make sure your RELENGS are 100% correct"

We can confirm this at http://www.freebsd.org/releng

Consider a binary update. Throw in a CD-ROM, choose "Upgrade" and follow
the instructions. I'm not sure whether sysinstall makes a backup of
/etc, because this upgrade overwrites configuration files, passwd and so
on. Pay attention ... well, too late. :-P
