A lot of users download all the distfiles first, then use portmaster
in "off line" mode. This is why users requested the -F feature.

While I certainly appreciate your wanting to include this as part of
portmaster my suggestion would be that you polish this up a bit and
submit it as its own port. I could easily see why users would like to
have this functionality in a convenient form, whether they use
portmaster or not.
