I recently upgraded automake in 05-devel.xzm with my,
"hardened" version using these command line parameters...
Note: the "new package.txz" must be in the same directory,ROOT=/pathtoextractedmoduledir upgradepkg oldpackagename%newpackage.txz
as the base .xzm module that will be extracted.
Precompiled .txz packages are available @...
slakfinder.org or pkgs.org
Also... the oldpackagename can be copied from /var/log/packages
My preferred upgrade directory path is... /root/Downloads/"extractedmoduledir"
