Quite foolishly, I ran this command without thinking it through:

portupgrade -arR

It's been running for 15 hours or so now, and I'm wondering how much
longer it is likely to take? I realize that "that depends" <grin />,
but I've love some anecdotal hints if anyone's got some. I installed
4.8 from a CD, and didn't upgrade much of anything, and I have since
CVSup'd a new ports tree, built the pkgdb and now portupgrade is just
running and running. It's not looping, it's just working away, and I
have no idea where it is in the process (it compiling kdeutils as we
speak - I wish I'd remembered to uninstall *that* before I started).
Any suggestions? Thanks.

Don't know that it's foolish, though it's best to have done this via X, I guess... you could just watch it work in an xterm or something.

I guess if you're in CLI, you could ALT-F2
to another virtual terminal and still work a bit?

-arR generally takes a day and a half for my desktop
machine.  Most of the time spent, though, in retrospect,
is grabbing new tarballs over a modem connection...
