Thanks!  Nope -r should be it, but I don't think you can specify 
patch level.  If I do:

   freebsd-update -r 11.1-RELEASE-p7 upgrade

I get:

   Fetching metadata signature for 11.1-RELEASE-p7 from failed.

I'm trying with just:

   freebsd-update -r 11.1-RELEASE upgrade

to see where I get, but I suspect I'll be at 11.1-RELEASE-p8 at 
the end of it.  (I don't want -p8 right this second).

I'll send an update when I see how it goes...
