Thanks. My freebsd server is on Amazon AWS using
http://www.daemonology.net/freebsd-on-ec2/

A bit nervous because there is no local console. Just installed a new
test/obsolete 8.3 box and will try the upgrade to 8.4 using these
commands:


svn co svn://svn.freebsd.org/base/stable/8 /usr/src
cd /usr/src
make buildworld
make kernel
make installworld
mergemaster -Ui
reboot
