You have to make sure that /usr/share/mk is up to date. This can be done

# (cd /usr/src/share/mk; make install)

If you look at the build target in /usr/src/Makefile you will find that
this is one of the first thing done...

It isn't easy to document since it's depends on from what you are
upgrading. If you are trying to upgrade from 2.5 you have to upgrade gcc.
This has been documented. You have to look at the mail archive to find
what to do.

What I should do is to take a snapshot and install. This will save you the
hassle of upgrading to current. When you are current it will be easier to 
stay current by following the mailing lists.
