imho, portversion(uses the INDEX file to look up port versions) is
like the desktop search(searh an index file), and the pkg_version(
queries the port
versions directly) is like the find command(search the entire disk);)
use portversion instead, it's efficient cause it use port database.
however, it will take a long time using portsdb to update the database
file (the INDEX file) when you want to use portversion.
ps,i like your essays on GNU/Linux, LaTex, etc. and I gain a lot from them
