I'm upgrading a server from 6.4 to 7.1 and am going through the relative
pain of re-compiling all the ports. It's not as easy "portupgrade -af"
because of all the special handling instructions of many ports.
I have not found an "easy" way to keep track of the ports that need to
be forcibly updated but have not undergone a version change. Because I
approach the upgrade in steps, I need to run portupgrade several times
but want to exclude stuff already compiled under 7.x.
What I need is a command like:
# portupgrade -af -x "already compiled on 7"
Suggestions, comments, rebukes welcome.
