Default OpenBSD/pf without compiler HOWTO update?

Hi all

Is there anyone who could help me with some links or some method of updating a firewall running OBSD/PF ?

The book "building firewalls with OB & PF" only states that it is unwise to install the compiler on a firewall. But it provides only a very shallow explanation of how to go about updating without it.

Building the packages on a remote machine is all very well but, once the packages are installed on the remote machine how can I possibly figure out how to get all that stuff on the firewall or what exactly has to be moved changed updated etc....for that matter, some of these "make install"s spit out a couple of pages of output onto the terminal.

kind regards,
