6.2 now official supports binary patches via freebsd-update(8). From
the 6.2-RELEASE announcement

"freebsd-update(8) provides officially supported binary updates for
security fixes and errata patches"

and you can update your third party packages via binary packages
(which you can get from freebsd.org or build yourself)...so it seems
these two solutions would be a great fit.
