If DragonFly have separated sets, most users don't have to spent long times
to do make buildworld, buildkernel, installkernel, installworld and upgrade.
For example, I can download OpenBSD daily build to upgrade my box:
/bin/ln -f /bsd /obsd
/bin/cp bsd.rd /bsd.rd
/bin/cp bsd /bsd.sp
/bin/cp bsd.mp /bsd.new
/bin/mv /bsd.new /bsd
cp /sbin/reboot /root/reboot
tar -C / -xzpf man58.tgz
tar -C / -xzpf xshare58.tgz
tar -C / -xzpf xbase58.tgz
tar -C / -xzpf comp58.tgz
tar -C / -xzpf base58.tgz
