        I've got ~770 ports install--many|most depencencies.  Doesn't
        "-a" rebuilt *everything*?  If not, I've been sadly
        mis-understanding the man page.  

        On my fastest FBSD box I'd like to custom build all the ports
        that need upgrading.  Turn them into pakages for use on all my
        other i686 servers.

        This may prove infinitely helpful because I've watchmy upgrades
        rebuild dependencies time after time.  No clue how to prevent!!

        hat's off,
