I have successfully done this with other versions of FreeBSD, whether or
not it works is dependent on exactly what version you're trying to back
out of, and I can't say for sure about 6-STABLE to 6.0.

Are you sure you completed the process successfully? If you'd had
tag=., this would reports something like 6-STABLE. If you'd had
6_0_RELENG, it would report 6.0-RELEASE-p9.
It looks as if the make install* steps weren't completed.
