If it's a fat jail (as described in the jail(8) man page, then you can keep it up to date by doing: # make installworld DESTDIR=/path/to/jail then log into the jail, and run 'mergemaster'. You should incorporate these stages into whatever your routine is for doing system upgrades, so you keep jail and host system updated in synch.
