Fortunately, there is a way to turn the axe into a scalpel. :-)

You can put stuff in make.conf so that it will only affect the ports
you want. Like this;

.if ${.CURDIR:M*/multimedia/mplayer}

If the directory where make is invoked from ends in /multimedia/mplayer,
the variables inside the if-block will be set.

This works well because every update utility in the end invokes make to
build the port.
