It's only your own opinion until you share with us the measurements
that led you to conclude this.  FreeBSD 6.0 is much faster than
FreeBSD 5.4 in my measurements, especially in the area of filesystem

This is not a FreeBSD 6.0 problem, it indicates that you aren't
upgrading your ports properly.

Look into the portupgrade tool, and if you have specific problems with
using it, then post specific questions.
