The port itself will handle anything "above". As for things "below" ... you're pretty much hosed. If the pkg db (or equivalent) existed, it would know which ports had been installed and could rebuild things. Without the pkg db, the only record of what _should_ be installed is in your head. On the other hand, if you remeber certain leaf ports installing them will drag in most of the infrastructure. (My candidates: OpenOffice, Firefox, Apache, something involving Java. GIMP.) It will still take time, but within limits you can just let it run. A scenario for the future: my /var/db/pkg has ~620 entries, and totals just over 62mb. Building a tarball took less than a minute and ate another 60mb. Might be a sound investment.
