Rebuild World?

#2
I normally do a world/kernel build this way

Code:
# cd /usr/src
# make buildworld
# make buildkernel KERNCONF=KERNEL_CONF_FILE
# make installkernel KERNCONF=KERNEL_CONF_FILE
# shutdown -r now
boot into single user mode

Code:
# fsck -p
# mount -u /
# mount -a -t ufs
# swapon -a
# export PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin
# mergemaster -p
# cd /usr/src
# make installworld
# mergemaster
# shutdown -r now
as for when you should do it, well if you're upgrading from one version to another you should do it, or if you're updating for a security fix and it recommends doing a kernel and world update.

thanks geffy - one other question if i was to use csup -g -L2 -h cvsup.freebsd.org /usr/share/examples/cvsup/standard-supfile and get all the src files and did make buildworld, would that update all the installed base packages

eg update openssl from 0.9.8d to 0.9.8i ? as i have installed openssl from prts but the version still shows 0.9.8d
