I believe the command just appends config-recursive to the make command:
make config-recursive PORT_UPGRADE=yes -DFORCE_PKG_REGISTER reinstall

So if I run:
portupgrade -m 'config-recursive' -a

I believe I could still get stuck on a config screen after it has
spent some time upgrading the first few ports.
