Touche! FreeBSD rocks! :)

freebsd-update does binary updates. I guess that's why it doesn't honour 
the options in make.conf?

But what you say is a point nevertheless. If I were to use the newer 
version of BIND from ports (for instance), then freebsd-update would end 
up replacing it ... hmm, not nice. Maybe there's some way to ignore 
certain stuff through freebsd-update.conf(5)? The "IgnorePaths" setting 
seems an option where one can set paths to be ignore ... I suppose that 
can be used in such a situation? (Any examples anyone?)
