Hm. You mean like building them as binary packages on a different system
/ in a jail / chroot first and update them via binary packages on the
server? Seriously, I don't want any unnecessary downtime on my servers
and I don't want to take unnecessary risks like hoping replacing updates
does the right thing. While pkg_comp hsa not been ported yet, setting up
a jail is damn easy if you follow the letters in jail(8).
