Exactly these kinds of hassles I don't want. I am wondering - FreeBSD
has built such a nice thing like the ports system. It's a work of
genius. Only that the install/upgrade process of the system itself is
completely different (and not very convenient IMO). Is it not possible
to 'port' the System stuff into the ports system (or a different ports
system, say, the 'system ports' or something like that). Just an idea.

Ok, are there other ways? Isn't there a script, which places the new
archives over the old ones, and removes the stuff, that's left from the
old system? Or is this a too-difficult task?
