That's an other (old and used) subject, but my little experience teach me 

1: the lesser amount of depency you have, the better your system work.
2: if your system work in this state, don't uppgrade your ports unless you 
need this or that new feature or if that there is a security issue.
3: don't use xxxxxxxxxxx to upgrade your ports.
