Never, ever, *ever* do this.

"pkg_version -c" is a hack to make cut-n-paste easier.  The output is
sorted alphabetically and no notice is taken of dependencies between
different ports.

*If* you know what you're doing then -c is useful to help save you some
typing.  But you should never run the commands automatically.
