So as long as you have the port's Makefile everything
should be fine.  But that means that you browse the
port files each time you want a new report about
them(while the portversion command use the .db file).
Isn't it slower? Maybe I didn't got it right.

Also, do you prefer building locally or just using
prepackaged stuff? I found out that the two doesn't
mix so well. I've installed some part of kde by
portupgrade and some by pkg_add, then I got errors
while building the metaport "kde". I solved it by
pkg_delete the previous pkg_added ports and make
install them. 
Is it so in general or it is just a temporary issue
that will be solved later (I was talking about
