portupgrade question

I'm updating textproc/expat2 in one of our machines, and I'm
following the procedure recommended in UPDATING:

portupgrade -fr textproc/expat2

However, in the middle of the process, we had to shutdown
the machine. It had already processed (i.e. built and
installed) 44 ports.

Since there are a lot of things that depend on expat this
takes a while. Also, since I'm using '-f' this means that if
something happens and I need to start again, all of the
affected ports will be compiled and installed again ... 

Now my question: is it possible to somehow restart from
where it started? (I have the list of the 44 ports that are
already done)

Thanks in advance,
