Installing multiple ports quietly and efficiently

Here's one way to install multiple FreeBSD ports unattended on a machine: cd /usr/port/foo/prog1; make install; cd/usr/ports/foo/prog2; make install and so on (perhaps even in a shell script). Two problems: % It's ugly. I'd prefer cd /usr/ports; make foo/prog1 foo/prog2 ... % make install
