I've done this many times with no problems.


You serve yourself very well by recompiling all your ports or  
reinstalling the packages to be the ones built against 6.0.  This is  
especially necessary for libraries and programs that link against  
those libraries and those programs that dynamically load extensions  
(such as postgres).  Otherwise you're forcing two copies of libc to  
load at the same time in some cases and that causes no end of confusion.
