I am currently running:
FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE-p20 #2

After reading the docs, it appears the procedure to upgrade from 6.1 to
6.2 is the following:

1) Change:  default release=cvs tag=RELENG_6_1  to tag=RELENG_6_2
in /usr/local/etc/cvsup/cvsupfile

2) run cvsup /usr/local/etc/cvsup/cvsupfile to get the new base and
kernel sources

3) run portsnap fetch update to update the ports tree

4) go through the procedure outlined in:

This will leave me with  FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE at the latest patch
level for that release yes? 

I do NOT need to portupgrade -a since this is a minor version upgrade
