Default Is building from source the only option?

After using OpenBSD for a few years now, and FreeBSD on and off, I decided I should give NetBSD a try. Please don't take my question as a complaint, it is not. I am liking what I have seen so far. Completely fabulous on my X230. Pkgsrc is awesome, and the system is pretty intuitive to me.

As far as applying system updates to stable, is building from source the only option?

I have been searching around and that is the only option I see in their documentation. If so, how do people solve upgrading for smaller devices like the Pi, or a Beaglebone? Surely they are not building on those devices?

I assume on would build on another device and then install with sysupgrade, but wanted to check in case I was making more work for myself than necessary.

LOL! My bad.

Right here.
At the very bottom. Guess I was tired of looking at docs when I got down that far.
