For my upgrade from i386 to amd64 (some years ago) I did follow the
steps described in
in the section
	"To cross-install current onto a separate partition"
with the additional arguments 
for the make-commands.
The first step in the new system was a native rebuild to be sure that
all is good.


The good thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from.
