Nope.  I installed Potato and left it at that.

Running "dselect" on that machine is an exercise in patience, let me
tell you ...

I don't bother too much about security updates.  It is a firewall so
basically nothing is running.  I have a DHCP client to deal with my
cablemodem interface and SSHD.  And that's about it.  

I was fortunate that the last security update for SSH included potato
packages.  If that doesn't happen next time, I'll have to set up a
potato pbuilder environment and build my own packages.
