I hope not.  We really need to move this out of being a ports

requires someone to be chained to the computer, so as to intercept

no inpput whatever.
That's not correct, you can run make config-conditional or  make
config-recursive anytime you like.

But not on a portupgrade... I don't want to run config-recursive on
the whole ports tree though....

It's not hard to script it though, something like the following would do

for p in `pkg_version -ol'<' |awk '{ print $1 }'`; do
cd /usr/ports/${p} && make config-recursive done

I can't believe you actually suggested this. First thing, it would take you HOURS to complete, and you better not make even one mistake, 'cause you couldn't even go back far enough to figure out what the name was of the port you muffed. Beyond that, since most ports ask questions formed with the name of the target dependency, aznd not asking things like "do you want such-and-such capability", so you have to be conversant with the names and capabilities of nearly 10,000 ports, to be able to do that job.

Were you really seriously suggesting this. It's so unworkable, its laughable.
