With the addition that if you are using any third party patches to 
your installation, you will need to re-apply them before your make 
step. So essentially, yes, it is pretty much that simple.

A couple of things to note...

The file config.log in the source directory for the previous release 
will have the configure command that you used to install that 
version. (You did keep that around? If not, you may have to reinvent 
what was done last install).

If anyone has incorrectly edited Defaults.py instead of putting 
things in mm_cfg.py, those changes will be lost.
