I thought the Handbook was pretty good on these topics.

Probably not; it's only likely to be a problem if you have
frequently-changing files. You might want to do the logging to somewhere
else, such as by forwarding them to another machine (the syntax for that
is in the manual for syslog.conf(5).

No, poudriere is only for building ports. The Handbook section on
"Updating and Upgrading FreeBSD" describes your options for the base
system. You probably don't need a custom kernel anyway.
