I have recently taken over sysadmin chores for a FreeBSD 9.2 system that
runs ports installed with some combination of default and non-default
I don't know which ports have non-default options set. The person who
set up the system is not available.
For purposes of keeping the system up-to-date, which option is best:
- just run 'pkg update && pkg upgrade'
- just update the ports tree and run 'portmaster -aD'
- some combination of pkg and portmaster
- something else
