Yeah, that's a little out of my league.

I believe that there are changes recorded in /var/db/pkg for installations 
made using PREFIX=, but I've never gone so far as to determine if portupgrade 
will upgrade them independently.  I expect one installation would overwrite 
the next ...

You might try the --beforebuild and --afterinstall knobs of portupgrade to 
alter the PORTNAME switch on the port Makefile.  This would ensure that 
entries in /var/db/pkg/ are not overwritten, but I don't know if you could 
automate that on a per-port basis.

Let us know what you find out, and Good Luck!
