NetBSD 6.0_BETA: cut-over and what Package Source to use?

I'm downloading NetBSD 6.0_BETA now, and I expect that it will
be swell.  Thank you very much for this release.

But I've got a couple of questions:

1.  When was the cut-over from NetBSD current?  Specifically, when
I upgrade from NetBSD Current NetBSD 5.99.56 (GENERIC), 12 November 2011,
amd64, am I safe?

I used the then package source _current_ to make emacs, bash, etc.  Is this
compatible with 6.0_BETA?

2.  What pkgsrc should I use to regenerate emacs, bash, etc.  Should I use
the same pkgsrc as for 5.2, or pkgsrc current?



Kind Regards, I am
