Single user probably would be safest... but I normally do:

cd /usr/build && tar cf - | (cd / && tar -x -B -p -f - --unlink)

in multi-user.  The --unlink is important otherwise running binaries
will not be overwritten which can lead to... lossage.  Oh and then I
run /etc/postinstall to fix up /etc.
