The problem is if you use portupgrade, it will update the dependencies
inside +CONTENTS and +REQUIRED_BY, so ports that may have been
installed long ago will have their directory timestamps updated:

/var/db/pkg> ls -l pkgconfig-0.20_2
total 41
-rw-r--r--    1 root  wheel     60 May  2 09:54 +COMMENT
-rw-r--r--    1 root  wheel    539 May  2 09:54 +CONTENTS
-rw-r--r--    1 root  wheel    771 May  2 09:54 +DESC
-r--r--r--    1 root  wheel  15248 May  2 09:54 +MTREE_DIRS
-rw-r--r--    1 root  wheel   4072 May 17 15:22 +REQUIRED_BY
drwxr-xr-x    2 root  wheel    512 May 17 15:21 ./
drwxr-xr-x  692 root  wheel  18432 May 17 15:21 ../

It depends on what date you're interested in, I guess.
