Good points; I will update the text in the Handbook and (attempt to)
consistently mention date of the last build on my webpage where I have it

The install method in the Handbook predates the BSD Installer; it hasn't
been updated.  On the plus side, the BSD Installer is very easy to use, so
it needs little documentation compared to a manual install.

Scott Ullrich had sent me a number of screenshots at one point so I could
write something, but it slipped by the wayside.  I need to update that and
the ports section, badly, in addition to catchup with applicable patches
for the whole Handbook taken from FreeBSD.  (Help is welcomed.)
