manage base system binary patches
syspatch is a utility to fetch, verify, install and
revert OpenBSD binary patches.
When run without any options,
will apply all missing patches, creating a rollback
tarball containing the files it is about to replace, then extracting and
installing all files contained in the syspatch tarball. If any sets are
missing, patches are skipped accordingly. Patches are cumulative and as such
it is not possible to install only a subset of them.
The options are as follows:
- List available patches; suitable for

- Revert all patches.
- Revert the most recently installed patch.
- OpenBSD mirror top-level URL for fetching
- Directories containing the rollback tarball and original signed
