[Slackbuilds-users] What packages do you upgrade?

I noticed that there were some updates on some SBo packages I had already
installed on my new Slackware 13.37 installation. Given some possible
options that come to my mind, what would you consider as the best practice?

1. Ignore them unless there are some security issues.
2. Upgrade them and rebuild any packages that were built against them.
3. Upgrade them but do not bother with any other packages even if they were
built against them.

I tend to find the last option as the most sensible but I would appreciate
your opinions.
