As I mentioned I update using svn for both src and ports, and I am curious to know if I can actually bring my src tree up to the most current 10.x stable, recompile, and install and have it all run?
So here is my take on the update . For starters if you are using a stock binary 9.3-RELEASE you can use freebsd-update to go 9.3 -> 10.1 , 10.1 -> 10.3 , 10.3 -> 11.0 . In theory freebsd-update should allow for 9.x -> 10.x but there was some breakage in the 10's FreeBSD updates that prevented this .
If you decided to do a source build you can go 9.x to 10.3 w/o much.
