It's not really a one-size fits all problem - it depends on which
channels you use and  whether you want sa-compile (which isn't
supported by either script quoted).

sa-update is very cheap to run - if there's no update it's just a dns
lookup. If you're using the auto-generated "sought" rules you may wish
to update several times a day. OTOH sa-compile is very cpu intensive,
and once a day may be too much.

One other thing is that just I always use sa-update with
--gpghomedir. If you use the default you loose any third-party public
keys each time the SA port is reinstalled.
