Yeah. For this sort of reason I have poudriere build daily for
internet-connected systems (these systems have a strict
install-what-is-required-only policy to minimise risk) and weekly for
systems running behind a firewall and then nat, which
have lots of desktop-type software and take a long time to build.

I want the very latest and patched software for the directly internet 
connected machines. Additionally, port audit -F runs on all machines in
their daily scripts.
