Well, freebsd-update is only for the base system (binary updates) while
the cvsup/portupgrade combo is for ports.
I tend to update the sources and recompile, so I can use src.conf and
make.conf to customise the base system and ports.
For the base system: csup (not a typo, it's a replacement in the base
system for the cvsup port). For ports, a combination of portsnap to
update the ports tree, and portmaster to recompile out-of-date ports.
