How to apply security patches to applications within a jail?

That's not what I mean.

Either before installing Apache from source or after you have it installed,
you'd check for patches and then do something like:

cd apache2x-whatever_version/
patch -p1 < patchfile

Unless I'm wrong, when you install from the port that's within the jail, I
don't think you have the ability to apply the patches (after an
announcement has been made and a security patch released to address the
vulnerability) directly to the source code and then recompile, etc., etc.???
