The only common between the jail and the hosted system are the kernel and 
its drivers.
You may use entirely different ports in the base system and into the 
jailed enviroment. So you may keep your jailed ports up to date without 
any concern as long as they do not conflict with the base system drivers 
and etc.

Ports upgrade within Jail

Hello List,
i have a jail hosted on a 6-2 RELEASE machine i don't have access to. As 
i don't have access, i can't upgrade the base system. But i would like 
to keep the ports i use up to date.

Will i encounter problems if i just upgrade my ports using portsnap and 
portmaster? or will those tools be aware of the version my base system 
is and only use ports that are made for this version?

Thank you
