I'm not 100% sure if -L is required, since there shouldn't be any locking
when you use WRKDIRPREFIX.
If you see locking problems, add it. Actually, you can mount /usr/ports
ro if you set WRKDIRPREFIX. Unless you want to fetch distfiles on the
client machines, but you can work around that as well with a different
environment variable (name escapes me at the moment).
