"The i386 branch recently went ELF, complementing the W^X work.Having done the a.out to ELF upgrade on a SPARC, yes, it's just easiest to reinstall from scratch. All sorts of things will stop working otherwise, and it's easiest to just do a wipe and reinstall. The snapshots are up and making the rounds of the mirrors, so if you feel daring, download and test stuff out.
If you wish to upgrade, you must do so by installing a binary snapshot.. upgrading from source won't work.
