Generally, unless you definately know what you're doing, you should always
download and recompile the entire source tree.
I guess if you knew what you wanted to upgrade then you could just download
bits, but you would be on your own as I don't think the make world system
Also, a lot of the parts of the system rely on other parts, so you should
upgrade it all as a whole.
