I haven't upgraded any systems from 5.5 to 6.1, but going from
5.4 to 6.0 there wasn't anything major.  The three points which
were non-trivial are
1. Addition of _dhcp user and group,
2. ABI differences mean that everything installed from the ports
tree should be rebuilt, and
3. Portupgrade gets confused due to database format changes, do
you should run `portupgrade -fR portupgrade` before portupgrading
anything else.
