Hi Neil,

You could try ports-mgmt/portdowngrade (http://bit.ly/3bqoPU), but it
may only work on one port at a time.

If you want to downgrade your whole ports tree, then you can use csup
with a supfile that specifies a date or the RELEASE_7_1_0 tag.  Have a
look at the man page section titled "CHECKOUT MODE" for the different
supfile options: http://bit.ly/3tww9G

Hope that helps,
Greg
