Hi Steve,

Sorry, nothing in the article, or the manpages, about this specific 
problem. Problem is I want to be able to run for example "portupgrade -aP", 
and for a handful ports it will not use a package, but always build using 
the port. I cannot find documentation about this functionality anywhere.

Thanks anyway!
