One small question about portupgrade (and yes I HAVE read the man-pages!)
So I've read manpages on portupgrade and portinstall (same program i know)
and I've been doing plenty of installs with "portinstall -P" to install packages, because I have a plenty slow machine, and I have yet to have been told any real advantages to compiling over installing packages, so I install packages
can I just run "portupgrade -aP" to install all upgrades and install them from packages when found?
How often will fresh updates be rolled into packages for my convenience? How often are things made into packages in general?
also, is running "portupgrade -aP" safe? does it run the pkgdb commands necessary to keep my system well-maintained?
is this the optimal method for updating a machine?
