and if u dont want to spend $$ on a LB and u understand your server  / traffic 
load, just move the public IP of the server being upgraded to another server. 
Of course, this assumes u have at least one spare public IP to assign to the 
server being upgraded....

btw, building packages, sharing and installing with portupgrade -PP works GREAT 
in 99.999% of the cases. If you cant be bothered with NFS, just rsync the 
/usr/ports/packages/All dir :)
