Doing what in a remote machine is asking for trouble?  SSH will not be affected.

Problem is it uses perl and perl is used by another package the hosting company installed that depends on it. And that I really have 0 experience with it so reinstalling a new one means downtime. I'll try to modify dkimproxy and see what happens. So far the newer version installed with warnings but doesn't even start.

If you need "stability" (production ready), you (as the maintainer of
the machine) are obligated to some extent to keep it both, up to date
and "stable".

Note:  I use "stable" in quotes to not be confused with -STABLE.

AFAIK, 7.0-REL was EOL'd (or is scheduled to be).  Ports are generally
guaranteed to be installable on the latest -RELEASE version (in this
case, 7.1-RELEASE).  Anything prior to that is not a guarantee.
Packages (as I am sure you are aware) are only built one time -- when
X.X-RELEASE is released.  There is no guarantee on compatibility after
that point.
