That's really hard to implement, because ports are highly
interdependent.  To do this properly, you would need to checkout
the entire ports tree n times, where n is the number of times
PKGNAME has changed in the history of the ports tree.  Plus, they
can vary depending on options.  Suffice it to say, getting all
this information would be astronomically difficult.  :-)
