I was running FreeBSD release 2.2.1, and to upgrade to 2.2.2 I did the

1) installed CVSup (statically linked version 15.0)

2) ran CVSup with the following supfile:

*default tag=RELENG_2_2_2_RELEASE
*default prefix=/usr
*default base=/usr/local/etc/cvsup
*default release=cvs delete use-rel-suffix compress

which downloaded all the new source files into /usr/src.

3) ran "make world" from /usr/src

4) after "make world" completed successfully (4 hrs), I recompiled my
kernel (just for kicks; I didn't change any kernel options)

5) rebooted the box.

Now I read the 2.2.2 release notes, and it says /etc/sysconfig was
replaced by /etc/rc.conf, but I still have an /etc/sysconfig and no
/etc/rc.conf.  Also, I don't seem to have the new lchown() command.  Am
I really upgraded to 2.2.2?  when I boot, it does say that it's running
2.2.2, but I wonder if it really is fully installed.

Finally,  do I have to do this entire 5 hr process every time I want to
upgrade to a new release of FreeBSD??

all help appreciated.
