When upgrading between major versions, yes, you certainly 
need to rebuild all userland ports before doing the second 
reboot, otherwise all hell will break loose when libraries 
for the major version are incompatibile with userland ports 
built with a library from a previous major version.

My issue is I've never had to do this when upgrading minor 
revisions within the same release train.

So I'll go ahead and ignore the message and let you all know 
what happens.
