	Read /usr/src/UPDATING whenever you do this.

	in there you will find (among other things)

To upgrade a DragonFly system from sources you run the following sequence:

   cd /usr/src
   make buildworld
   make buildkernel KERNCONF=<KERNELNAME>
   make installkernel KERNCONF=<KERNELNAME>
   make installworld

You will also want to run the 'upgrade' target to upgrade your /etc.  The
upgrade target is aware of stale files created by older DragonFly
installations and should delete them automatically.

   make upgrade

	Personally I think there really should be a 'reboot to single
user mode' instruction between installkernel and installworld.
