Is this also included in packages that are provided to end users?

Maybe just building all from start each quarter the first time is good 
and then for the next three months only rebuild as needed.

My normal pkgsrc usage for ten years on many systems is also to not

hundreds of packages installed from 2007 and 2008 for example, but I 
update packages very recently for things I need.
