Do you simply use 'portmaster -a' to update everything? I've tried using it a few times, but it never recompiled ports that depend on the one being updated. I recall there was an option to do that, but you had to specify each port manually for that to work. How do you get it to update all out-of-date ports and recompile everything depending on those ports?
