I am starting this on pgfoundry.org right now ... the procedure is very
simple (but longish):
use rsync to create a duplicate
upgrade OS to 7.x
upgrade all ports to 7.x
restart VPS to ensure all services restart
I won't be going to bed until it is finished, so there will be no delays
for rebuilding the ports themselves ...
