My box is Slackware 11.0 & Win XP SP2.

metapost's src release tarball contains the different(older) version
of kpathsea&web2c with TL2007's src. so how can I make it upgrade to
TL2007's version ?

BTW: If I want to upgrade some packages of TL2007, can I just simple
extra the iso, replace the file and then mkiso ?
