The meta package in question is modular-xorg. Mine is quite old.

My spidey-sense tells me that in practice one does not "update" a meta-package per se. Or perhaps not?

What is considered Best Practices wrt this situation?

Meta packages themselves get updated every now and again, so you can run "make update" on them, but I'd personally use pkgtools/pkg_rolling-replace in the cvs root directory.
