Subscribe to FreeBSD-security-notifications, and you will receive mail
when a fix is applied.  Other than that, it doesn't hurt to run cvsup
over your src tree once a week.  There's only need to do a buildworld if
any files are updated.  It's a strategy that works well for me, anyway.
YMMV, as they say.
