I am curious if it works for somebody. I tried it about a year ago but 
it didn't work. I am using -O option for each bulk build.

I am still hoping that overlays will work for "poudriere options" too, 
because it is a real pain to "comment / uncomment" local ports from 
package list (-f) just to run "poudriere options" on set with 100+ ports.
