So, package-recursive is useful, rather not wasteful, only if a port
depends on previously un-packaged ports.

How about use of digest checksum(s) stored in a port's file to
compare w/ that of port's package before start of package-ing?
If package name is different or the checksums don't match (say,
different options, CFLAGS & such), package should be built.
