Default OpenBSD is really really hard. Adding patches won't do any good.
But some things can be gained by changing some settings like who can use
crontab, who can ping etc. Ie the kind of things you want to change if
your machine will be a shell server. But if that machine is your
personal machine with no other accounts... why bother.
For a tweaker OpenBSD is the ultimately boring OS. Better subscribe to
the securitty announcement-mailinglist so you are the first to know
about any possible local exploits.
