It should also be noted that upgrading leaves previously installed libraries, for instance, if you did as ocicat said, each major revision of libc would remain in /usr/lib..

Sometimes I might do a upgrade, but only once.. going from 4.0->4.1->4.2->4.3 is bound to leave a mess. (albeit a little one..), and if you properly setup disklabels it's often easier to perform a re-installation.
