You could have a go with portupgrade using the p and r options. I
don't think it will work with the metaports but you could do something
# portupgrade -Nvpr xf86-video-nv-2.1.6
A word of warning though:
$ pkg_info -r xf86-video-nv-2.1.6 | wc -l
$ pkg_info -r gnome-icon-theme-2.20.0_1 | wc -l
You could again use portupgrade with the PP option to install your
packages on the target machine.
The way I'd do it, is use portupgrade with the PP and r options to do
the original install and then just copy over the downloaded packages
to the target machines. It would save on compilation time.
