Look at my command line, (with the typo fixed)
env UNAME_r=8.2-RELEASE ./freebsd-update upgrade -r 9.0
This made freebsd-update proceed as if it was a RELEASE and the upgrade
I always update STABLE with csup and make

I normally use the '11 step program' as per the Makefile.
I wanted to see if freebsd-update would do this. And, it does. In hind
