For the record: It would not be a problem at all, at least in this 
particular case: You’re only patching and reinstalling bzip2, which 
hasn’t had a commit for ages except this one security patch.


You’re not touching any other system component, so the date of your 
/usr/src checkout is not an issue. You could even csup the most recent 
version instead of applying the patch manually and then recompile bzip2
