More like:

Updating Existing Systems

An upgrade of any existing system to FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE constitutes a
major version upgrade, so no matter which method you use to update an
older system you should reinstall any ports you have installed on the
machine. This will avoid binaries becoming linked to inconsistent sets
of libraries when future port upgrades rebuild one port but not others
that link to it. This can be done with:

# portupgrade -faP

after updating your system. Note some of the tools to help with this or
the instructions below for FreeBSD Update are not installed by default
(e.g. portupgrade, gpg, or similar tools like portmaster).

Instead to use portupgrade you can wipe out _all_ installed packages
(pkg_delete -a) and reinstall them again.
