That makes sense.  I fairly often run with them out of sync.  The
main thing is to make sure that you're building the kernel with the
proper tools.

The easiest update is to use to build a full set, install &
reboot the new kernel, then update userland from the tar sets, as you
say.  The other thing that I've done is to go ahead and just make
an ISO image to install from.
