Ok, as csup is 'deprecated' - I guess what I need to do is move over to 
Subversion instead? - As 'freebsd-update' is only going to get me release + 
security (-pX), not 'stable'.

At the moment we have a local host that has the entire FreeBSD source tree 
on it - so we can just 'cherry pick' versions we need to update - I'd guess 
/ hope a similar setup is possible, but with Subversion...

[Off to look for a setup guide ;)]
