I can only assume that you already have other things installed warranting your hesitation. Otherwise if this is a throw-away installation, simply do a fresh install of a snapshot.
The upgrade process seems a little complicated without the aid of CVS.
Actually, it is quite painless. Instead of choosing "install" at the initial menu, choose "upgrade". It will install new filesets, then it will either copy whatever changes are needed to /etc to a different location, or you can edit in place. CVS is not required to upgrade to -current which might be your interpretation of the table shown in Section 5.3.2. Many people simply install the snapshot & stop there. Downloading source & manually building is not required.
