The -rR bothers me because it is making a lot of ports that don't need 
to be updated. I typically have 2 or 3 lines that need updating and 
-ruf will force them. If I have more than 2 intersections, I do a -ufa. 
With the -f, you see the messages about x is need by y-z but I will 
delete it anyway. The way I understand it, a -rR kdebase will rebuild 
most of XFree86 and etc.

The AMD 2000+ uses 6-8 hours to rebuild everything but it will rebuild 
all of kde-3.1 in 3+. I also create packages on the 2000 for upgrades 
on my slower machines and ftp the packages to the slower systems. The 
only difference is that I then use -Pufr instead of -pufr.
