Maybe there's a misunderstanding. What I meant was that if you do

cd /usr/pkgsrc/whatever/something && cvs up -dP

then "something" might not build correctly because there may be
changes somewhere else in the CVS repository affecting it.

So what I meant was, it's safer to update the whole tree:
cd /usr/pkgsrc && cvs up -dP

I didn't mean you couldn't update the installation of a single package.
