Ta...  I'll give it ago...

in clarification....

if I upgrade from 4.8 to 4.9, will I also have to upgrade (by whatever method) 
the applications running on the box? I.e. those that are not part of the src 

for that matter, am I likely to encounter any issues with configuration files?
/etc/... and /usr/local/etc/... ???
