So you can do something like: portupgrade -fr perl -x '>=perl' meaning: update everything that depends on perl except any packages installed after perl. That is restartable. When you're doing forced upgrades of everything, as is necessary for example when upgrading from 6.x to 7.0 then instead of doing portupgrade -fa it's better to do: portupgrade -f '<2007-12-23' where 2007-12-23 is the date you did the system update. That command can be restarted without wastefully re-recompiling a bunch of stuff -- although you should avoid updating any ports prior to but on the same day as the system upgrade.
