Nope. I've been doing that too. I have non-english and unused ports commented out in my ports-supfile (ports-all commented out and individual ports are in), and also listed non-language ports in refuse. portupgrade runs fine. portdb complaints with a ton of error messages about dependencies missing etc, but all is well. The only gotcha I encountered is when new ports branches are added (i.e. port-dns). Since I list specific ports in my supfile, new ports are not caught automatically, which means the supfile needs occasional maintenance. That's about it. And you're right, it's a space saver on small drives :) Cheers, Frank
