So running my sample CVSup supfile would not patch my system for the
security advisories from SA-03:08 - SA-0318(as of 10/19/03)? I'm under
the impression this supfile would take care of security advisories,
being that I'm updating the /usr directory. For everything to take in
effect I must build and install my kernel as well? I'm looking through
the FreeBSD Handbook and I don't
see this extra step.
