As I was faced with the same situation after a fresh install. This is the solution I came up with.
It is built in chronological order from oldest to newest. Quite tedious
I must say, as many of the packages have been pulled from the ftp site.
I would assume that this is because they are superseded by a later
Each advisory has its own page, so each must be reviewed separately to determine the order and name of the rpm to apply.
I rebooted into standard mode.
Btw, I am using the i386 version.
SCP the rpm's and script to ESL (be careful to remove the SMP kernel packages if you are not using SMP.)
Putty to esl and chmod 755 on "patchme.txt" an execute the script.
I'd be interested if some of the more knowledgeable on the list would review and comment either pro or con. All feedback would be welcome.

Subject: [EnGarde] order of updates?
I finally have a ESL (finestra) up and running and properly configured
so now I need to install the many security updates that Engarde has provided
Does it matter in what order I do those updates? Can I just start at
top of the list at
www.guardiandigital.com/products/software/trial/advisories.html and work my
way down? Or does it matter?
