My biggest wish for portupgrade is to respect make knobs in
pkgtools.conf when deciding package dependancies. For example,
everytime I do "make fetchindex" or let portsnap rebuilt INDEX-7,
"pkgdb -F" will report that  portupgrade depends on a non-existent
db40, while 'databases/ruby-bdb' => 'WITH_BDB43=yes' was set in

"Without the userland, the kernel is useless."
