Ever tried to update them? :-)
source based upgrade?

Binary. In case of bmake source.
I meant that source-based upgrade may be used for this.
I will not repeat you how to solve chicken-and-egg problem.

I'm not sure this is in the spirit of the system. Why produce binaries at all if we have to build from source "sometimes". Also, I like to run a production systems
without compilers and other development tools installed on them.

Don't get me wrong I build lots of pkgsrc things from source but not because I want to.
