In a simelar situation I did this by setting up a centeral cvsup
mirror (allows you to maintain patches between cvsupdates [i.e. if the
file does not differ rcs stamp will not clobber it]).  So you always
have the most upto date to build against.  I am not sure on how to
handle the manual security patches on there first application but once
applied until the effect files are updated you will not have to
reapply the patches.
