Since that hack, I've discovered porteasy which I now prefer. I gave a 
how-to on keeping a system up-to-date with minimal stuff installed at 
meetBSD in Poland (sorry, didn't get into jails in this how-to). If NYCBUG 
is interested in hosting the PDF, I can send it for inclusion in the Library. 
Just tell me who to send the attachment to.
