Any way to do this?

portupgrade -fa

Yeah, this is what I was using, but it doesn't seem to recreate permissions properly... it just seems to inherit permissions from the parent directory, although it sets permissions contained within the directory where the files are installed properly.

I could be mistaken here though...
