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.
