Update FreeBSD base system and ports

Lars Sommer, 2009-10-06, using sources and manual rebuilding
Updated at 2010-01-25, using freebsd-update and portsnap instead

Update base system:
freebsd-update fetch
freebsd-update install


Update ports:
portsnap fetch update 
portversion -l "<" 
portaudit -Fda 
portupgrade -a
portaudit -Fda


New releases update:
See http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/updating-upgrading-freebsdupdate.html

Crontab can have this line to automatically do freebsd-update fetch, and send root a mail if any updates are available:
@daily                                  root    freebsd-update cron
And this to check for port updates:
@daily		root	portsnap fetch update && portversion -l "<"|mail -s "Port updates" root
