Something tells me, that that doesn't come from an exhaustive
walkthrough of the source code.
All of the upgrade tools have significant faults, but portmanager has a
particularly good track record of performing difficult major upgrades
without manual intervention. The fact that it performs several rebuilds
is not a sign that it's more broken, but rather a sign that it tries
harder to find a self-consistent solution.
