Hi Kris,

I *know* that there are limitations in the base tools or what to
expect. sysutil/portmanager can do this well enough (correct
dependancy), that's why I *wish* portupgrade could do this too. It's a
wishlist right?

If all customizations are to be done in make.conf, what is the point
of MAKE_ARGS in pkgtools.conf? I merely beg to complete the circle,
not to point fingers at anyone.

Have a nice day,
