Generally speaking the best supported upgrade path across major
version numbers is from the last release of the older version to the
first of the newer, which in your case would mean upgrading from 5.4
-> 5.5 -> 6.0 -> 6.2
Is there any particular reason you aren't using cvsup/csup to update
your source tree?
