System upgrade questions

I have a FreeBSD 5.3 release system which was upgraded with CVSup to
RELENG_5. I have recently built a new kernel, but *have not* rebuilt
"world". The computer now says it's a "FreeBSD 5.4-STABLE" system.
This can't be right, can it? :/
I think I have two options:
* downgrade the sources to RELENG_5_3 with CVSup (replacing
RELENG_5 with RELENG_5_3 in the supfile) and build a new FreeBSD
* rebuild "world" to have a FreeBSD 5.4 base system and kernel
If I opt for the second option, should I rebuild "world" everytime
there's a version bump in FreeBSD?
