One way is to use eg:
	rlogin master_host ; su
	cd /site; rdist -M 20 -P /usr/bin/ssh mylabel
& have various /etc & /usr/local/etc & httpd.conf etc files symbolic linked to
a parallel tree in per host copies of /site
Add
	PermitRootLogin yes
to
	/etc/ssh/sshd_config
To make rdist as root easier.

Some people prefer rsync to rdist. rdist6 & rsync are in /usr/ports/net/
There's doubtless other solutions too.
