Some I do recognize as having security issues that were addressed at the NetBSD, FreeBSD and Slackware sites. So the next question is how to sort through this. Is there a way to give a command like in FreeBSD to crank through the lot of them or do you do it manually using 'make update' starting in bzip2 and those packages that depend on bzip2?

Also I notice that the Firefox35 update has not made it yet into the patch branch. If there is a single command to do the lot of them I will probably hold off until the firefox35 update shows up - how long does it typically take?
