Hey, you're asking me to be logical - that's unfair! :-))

The main difference is that "make setup" also installs the files
in ~/server/www/ and ~/server/web/, and adds any missing files to
~/server/etc .

Normally when upgrading, you probably shouldn't install these, since
it is quite likely that you have modified them to setup a custom
look'n'feel for your Hobbit installation. But during the beta test,
I've had to modify these files a few times - fixing documentation
bugs, adding new files - and therefore I've asked you to run "make

Either one should work fine for upgrading from beta-5 to beta-6.
