not the most perfect solution, but I've changed the script so that *if* it is 
run with the
- -nodelay option (ie. how it runs from /usr/local/etc/rc.d/, as well 
as when you install the port the first time), it will only report the Operating 
System, and neither devices or ports, even if configured ...

The only time devices / ports will be reported is when run as part of monthly 
... so, running it on reboot *should* be near invisible now, as devices/ports 
were the ones that took alot report in ...
