You need to be prepared for the patching, upgrading, and maintenance issues each OS has and understand how these activities affect your security and availability."

Is there an easier way?
With arch-linux, all you have to do is:
#pacman -Syu
and your entire system is up to date.
Although, I think your method updates using source, and arch-linux method uses binary so not really comparible.

I was thinking of trying FreeBSD6 on my laptop when it comes out, but it seems a bit too different than what I'm used to :-(
