Yes, thanks you. Leaving aside two servers running a patched 4.7, the
rest are running -current. I just don't want to update right now this
one since on -current since a little bit unstable now and I don't feel
like re-making world on a Pentium 120MHz with 40MB RAM each next day.

I was thinking to use Colin's freebsd-update for the first time. Despite
his page saying only 5.2R is supported, running freebsd-update -v fetch
told only about kernel and linux.ko not being update-able (I've
recompiled the kernel so this seems normal and I don't load linux.ko).
