Actually, it looks to me like portinstall/portupgrade just issues a
"make install" for the highest level dependency it can and lets the
usual port dependency stuff do all the work, so it doesn't
have control over what happens in between those builds.  I suspect
changing that would require making portinstall/portupgrade a lot smarter
(and then potentially having to update them every time
changes, since it can no longer let do the heavy lifting).
