a minor release update is only "stop daemons - untar - start daemons". You can even do it "live" while jobs are running:

http://gridengine.sunsource.net/install62patch.txt

Pitfall: u3 => u4 "live" update while jobs are running is broken, but u4 => u5 is working again. I don't know about u3 => u5 though. But you would only lose running jobs then, but the untar procedure per se is working.
