Kernel + Base :
If you use the GENERIC kernel, freebsd-update will work great. It is part of the 7.x series, man freebsd-update :)

in pre-7 versions, i think you could install it from ports.

If you are past GENERIC, then you should read http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/cutting-edge.html 

Ports : 
you should read 
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/ports.html
and
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/portsnap.html

Good luck,
b

If you don't have the time to do it right, where are you going to find the time to do it over?

I speak for myself, not my employer. Contents may be hot. Slippery when wet. Reading disclaimers makes you go blind. Writing them is worse. You have been Warned.
