So what you propose to do is indeed just an upgrade, not a cross-grade. > I used the then package source _current_ to make emacs, bash, etc. Is this > compatible with 6.0_BETA? pkgsrc-current is compatible, meaning that building packages from pkgsrc-current on a 6.0_BETA system will work, or we'll agree that it's a bug. packages built from pkgsrc-current on 5.99.56 will likely work, but that question is about binary compat of compiled programs from 5.99.56 to 6.0_BETA, not about pkgsrc. > 2. What pkgsrc should I use to regenerate emacs, bash, etc. Should I use > the same pkgsrc as for 5.2, or pkgsrc current? Strictly speaking, there is no pkgsrc for 5.2. But it is reasonable to use pkgsrc-current, and it's reasonable to use pkgsrc-2011Q4. Note that pkgsrc is in a freeze, so using current is almost but not quite like using pkgsrc-2012Q1 (which does not exist yet). I'd recommend you use pkgsrc-current unless it causes you trouble.
