I would like to know when it is safe to do a make replace for a package.

In example, libtiff, recently a patch was added to fix trasparency issues, =
was not a release update, just a fix. is it safe a make replace for it?

Or doing pkg_tarup work for all dependent packages, building tiff, then=20
binary reinstalling all dependent packages again?

BTW, with pkgviews enabled, I've seen all binary packages installing to=20
/usr/pkg/packages but not in /var/db/pkg . Some packages are not recognized=
