it is very simple. Make a backup, make a snapshot, download the latest
sources. Just be careful with mergemaster. I would do it by hand.

If you can't compile the latest sources on the old machine, go to 10.0
first. I do not think that you have to go through all releases between.
10.0 might be the only obstacle.
