That is the safest way, indeed. But it should not be totally impossible to build recent versions of -current on 10.x. Normally, buildworld takes care of the heavy lifting by building all the needed tools first. But if you build only parts of the tree, you might encounter "interesting" situations. :) -Dimitry
