Sometimes, though you can't.  I've found myself in the situation where the
old version of vinum(8) wouldn't run against the new kernel, further
complicated by the fact that the new vinum was in /usr/obj, which is on a
vinum volume.

This hasn't been a problem in well over a year, but it bit me hard once.  Is
there an officially-supported guaranteed-to-work method for handling this?
I've been doing:

  make buildworld
  cp /usr/obj/usr/src/sbin/vinum/vinum /sbin/

just in case.  Is this still a necessary step?
