Shutdown now goes into single user mode, but it will close SSH =
!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Better is to manually shutdown al daemons through /usr/local/etc/rc.d =
and /etc/rc.d to only have sshd running.
If you using natd do not stop it either, because it will disconnect you.

Then you can  finnish the make world cycles.
That is the way I do it from a remote shell, it it only failed me once.

Else try on a spare machine install 5.5 and update it to 6.2 through a =
ssh version, then you know what to expect.
Also install the main ports you have running on your remote 5.5 box and =
try if they still work.
