Hmm. cvsup might be better. Having said that, when I cvsup'd 6.0-RELEASE
after installing from CD, there were only one or two files updated. But
my version went from 6.0-RELEASE to 6.0-RELEASE-p1.
The other thing is you don't appear to have run buildworld. This step
uses the 6.0-RELEASE source in /usr/src to build userland and gcc and
so on. I'm not sure, but I think you have to use the compilation tools
from buildworld to create your new kernel.

Did you do
make cleandepend; make depend ?

I'd be inclined to start from the beginning, going through the steps
given in usr/src/Makefile
