Or use portconfig -a

My usual updating routine involves:

- update the ports tree using csup

- update the INDEX-x with the command "make index" in the 
directory "/usr/ports"

- download all the tarballs upfront with the command "portfetch -a -v"

- do all the configuration upfront with the command "portconfig -a"

- do an unattended compile/install of the ports with the 
command "portmaster -a -u -d -v"

The ports portconfig  & portfetch are part of sysutils/bsdadminscripts.

Portmaster can be found at ports-mgmt/portmaster.

It is possible to write a simple shell script that automatically does 
all of the above.  The only time attention is required is to enter data 
during the configuration process.
