1) Please wrap your lines at 70 characters so your emails may be easily read.

2) Set the BATCH environment variable before running portupgrade to
skip interactive ports.  You can then go and build the interactive
ports all at once by setting the INTERACTIVE variable.

This and other control settings are documented in the
/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk file.
