I meant installing up-to-date packages from the *local* repository. So
if only Firefox needs to be updated would Poudriere first install
Firefox's dependencies into the jail from locally generated package
files before building Firefox.

If that happens then there wouldn't be much incentive to use anything
from the host as any package installed on the host would be in the
local repository - you'd just save a few installs.
