Well, DragonFly was a snapshot of FreeBSD 4.8. Going to FreeBSD 4.8 first
and then DragonFly would be the safest bet, not sure how FreeBSD 4.5 ->
DragonFly 1.0 would go.. You could always try?

Anyways, since you are remote, cvsup and building would be the best solution
for safety. If the build breaks you know something is wrong, with binary
upgrades you don't.
