Does that stop interactive ports being compiled or make them compile
with defaults? bsd.ports.mk says that BATCH mode would make portupgrade
'skip all the important targets' but I'm not sure what that means.
I was trying to find a way to walk through all the options, not only in
the blue screen menus but in the options in the various makefiles and
set them before doing the actual upgrade.
