Cvsup Source - FreeBSD

I've been using cvsup to upgrade the ports on my Freebsd box, and it works great. My question is how often should you cvsup the src and do a buildworld? Thanks Cody...

    Subscribe to FreeBSD-security-notifications, and you will receive mail
    when a fix is applied. Other than that, it doesn't hurt to run cvsup
    over your src tree once a week. There's only need to do a buildworld if
    any files are updated. It's a strategy that works well for me, anyway.
    YMMV, as they say.

    That's certainly a viable theory.
    I update every 4-8 weeks in addition to critical patches. It's
    not strictly necessary ... but it means I benefit from all the
    little fixes and improvements that happen on a daily basis,
