(vi == Visual Internet - used for many websites! :)
In NetBSD, you just replace the files you want to replace, and that's it.
At worst, you have to reboot (for kernel) or restart some service to read
new/changed files. Again, this is standard NetBSD operation - maybe see
http://www.netbsd.org/guide/en/part-compile.html, src/BUILDING and
src/UPDATING for some ideas.
NetBSD - Free AND Open! (And of course secure, portable, yadda yadda)
